Oliver has written more than 15 books, including the children's picture books:
Tales from the Chinese Zodiac series:
Previously in 2002 he wrote The Tao of Yao: Insights from Basketball's Brightest Big Man, which Publishers Weekly called a "clever twist on the traditional sports biography" and The Honolulu Advertiser praised as "meticulously researched and will interest the phenom's thousands of fans." In the same year he wrote and illustrated the graphic novel 9 of 1: A Window to the World which received 2003 Honorable Mention for the Gustavus Myers Award that "commends works that extend our understanding of the root causes of bigotry and the range of options we as humans have in constructing alternative ways to share power."
Oliver welcomes invitations from schools, libraries, and community venues and he reads and teaches at dozens of locales each year. Learn more about how to invite Immedium's authors to visit here.

"Oliver Chin seems to be my customer's favorite author! :) Really, I'm thrilled with the books and my customers are too!"

"[Oliver Chin's 9 of 1: A Window to the World] has to be among the best full length comics I've ever read. It's not only an interesting attempt at activism via comic form, it has that earnest Oxford Group-type mania for completion that still gives one a chill of pleasure."
- author Kevin Killian
"As society progresses away from gender stereotypes, it is nice to see children’s literature doing the same. Growing up in the ’90s, I spent my childhood wondering why all the heroes were male and females characters who needed saving. Julie Black Belt by Oliver Chin is a shining example of how things have changed for the better."
