Chang was born in Beijing, China, to a family of famous entertainers. At a young age, Chang learned the art of magic/illusion from her grandfather, often in the courtyards of the Forbidden City. Some years later, Chang was selected as star illusionist and ringmaster in an internationally acclaimed Chinese circus. She is a multi-talented entertainer and performer and has appeared on stage and screen in both China and the United States, including the film The Joy Luck Club.
Since the publication of her first book, Jin Jin the Dragon, Chang and Jin Jin the puppet have had readings and performed magic shows at schools and libraries throughout the country. Chang's second book, Jin Jin and Rain Wizard, has given Chang the opportunity to introduce Chinese culture, history and folklore to children all over the world through her books and colorful stage shows.
