Daniel Nieh is an American author who debuted in 2019 with his first novel, Beijing Payback. The idea for the book came to Nieh when he was living in Beijing in 2008-2009 and working as a model.

Nieh lives in Portland, Oregon where in addition to his work as a writer, he works as a Chinese-English translator and a professional model. Working as a freelance translator and interpreter brought him to China where he was discovered as a model so that trip turned out to be rather trans formative for his life as he gained that career and came up with the idea for his first novel. Traveling is a big part of Nieh’s life as he has lived in China, Japan, the United Kingdom, and even moved to Mexico to research the next book in the Victor Li series.
