Libby Lam, aka “Lady Libby”, is a best-selling children’s book author and illustrator who grew up in Hong Kong. Having led a corporate career for more than 10 years, Libby turned away from her past in search of a different life purpose - to inspire confidence and courage in children by creating her own children’s books.
Known for the unusual story plots and vibrant images, her four published books, “Checklisted Beauty”, “My Best Friend Sunny”, “Crispy Children” and the latest one "Ten-Star Service" were named best sellers in Hong Kong. Libby considers it her great honour to dedicate two of these books to charitable organisations Make-A-Wish Hong Kong and Plan International (Hong Kong) respectively for fundraising purposes.
Inspired by her background in psychology and her prior corporate career, Libby’s stories explores how individuals are challenged by society at different fronts and how they could rise to their own strength. The pain and euphoria of motherhood she experiences also bring a vivid and intimate touch on her characters, making them more relatable to the young readers.
Libby has learnt her trade at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) Hong Kong since 2011. She was a participating author and illustrator at the "Hong Kong International Literary Festival - Young Readers Festival" in 2019.
