About the Panelists:

Stephanie Lim: Stephanie Lim is the Co-Founder and CEO of Third State Books, which launched in 2023 as the first general-interest publisher dedicated exclusively to AAPI authors and stories. Before TSB, Stephanie spent over 15 years in digital marketing and operations, first as a strategist for advertising clients at Google, then leading e-commerce teams and managing multi-million-dollar advertising budgets for retail brands such as ModCloth, Bebe, and Serena Williams’s eponymous fashion label. Early in her career, she sifted through slush piles as an intern at Penguin Putnam and then screenplays as a development assistant for comedy producer Bob Simonds and actor/director Forest Whitaker, so working on TSB feels truly like coming full circle for her.

Stephanie will always be a SoCal girl at heart, but she’s making the best of the perpetually foggy weather in San Francisco with her husband, Garry, and their two sons. Stephanie is of Chinese-American descent by way of Burma.

Adam Sherman: Adam Sherman is a first-time author with a long history of activism in environmental, social justice, and human rights causes. Through his memoir, Living Beyond Normal, he seeks to show the futility of division, exclusivity, and hatred towards our fellow human beings.

Eric Toda: Eric is a tech executive who has held brand and digital marketing leadership roles at Fortune 100 companies including Gap Inc., Airbnb, Snapchat, and Nike. His work has garnered Cannes Lions, Webbys, Clios, Shortys, and other awards for marketing and business excellence. Eric's inspiration for this book was his personal experience of being discouraged from creativity when his artistic ability left something to be desired, and he wanted to tell a story that encourages children, including his own, to be creative without fear of judgment. He lives with his family in the Bay Area. Eric is of Filipino- and Japanese-Amercian descent.

Recently, Shay Fan and Eric set out to write a children’s picture book that celebrates creativity and perseverance. Being both from creative industries It was a story they wanted to tell that inspires more children to create.

Their book "What In The World Is Ezra's Art?" Is now available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, Inc. Within the first week, they have been within the Top 100 in: Children’s Art Fiction and Children’s Asian and Asian American Books.
