Chloe Gong is a Kiwi author who had her first adult novel published just last year, at 19 - and it made the New York times best sellers list!

Her book These Violent Delights is set in Shanghai in the 1920's - a kind of re-imagining of a slightly older and more jaded Romeo and Juliet who are the heads of rival gangs.

Chloe is currently studying at the University of Pennsylvania - and talks to us about life in the US, her writing, and her favourite books, movies, podcasts and music.
