Marcus Chan was 8 years old when he joined the Young Author tribe in February 2019. He doesn’t really have any hobbies but he used to play with perler beads which require lots of fine motor skills. What more? He likes sitting in front of his computer, surfing the Internet, and finding nice backgrounds for his laptop.
He also likes doing research about things, such as floods, volcanoes, hurricanes, and how they happen. He enjoys especially when you have some specific questions that you have to answer. Welcome to School Projects!
He sometimes likes to work with a partner so that they can share information. As the saying goes, two heads are better than one!
He likes playing video games, football, and his favorite subject at school is math. He loves chatting with friends, maybe too much as he is very talkative, listening to music and going to school.
He is an avid reader. He likes chapter books and he puts a hand on them whenever he has the chance to do so. Moreover, the genre doesn’t matter as long as the story is interesting. His favorite books are the ones from the series “Heroes of Olympus”. He likes the author Rick Riordan.
He wrote «The Alien Takeover» in Spring 2019, while his friends Andy Pan and Ryan Chen were writing their own stories. He enjoyed the experience of making a book because he could reflect on all his mistakes such as not including enough action, failing to write people dying, and making intense fiction.
What happens in «The Alien Takeover» may surprise you and what you believed to be true… well you’ll see!
