Being a first generation Asian American, motivated by the nature of my heritage, and lugging around a B.A. in English with a focus on Creative Writing, lends itself to alot of inspired story-telling. 



My love of steampunk and Asian culture often fuse to create tales both intimate and fantastical.

And as such, you, OH BELOVED READER, have a choice to make between my two stories:


If you desire an intimate, epic fantasy story inspired by Asian culture and infused with Steampunk elements, then SKY OF PAPER is for you. (I believe the steampunk subgenre is called "Victoriental")

If you'd like to show your appreciation for the author, feel free to leave a 99 cent tip through the Amazon Kindle website linked below. As a bonus, you'll also receive the Kindle version of SKY OF PAPER in its original chapter format.

However, if you seek a rompous Young-Adult Steampunk tale of absurd gadgetry, adventure and daring-do with larger-than-life characters in a post-apocalyptic Victorian world, then CHILDREN OF THE CLOCKWORK SKY should suit your tastes most impeccably.

Updates are posted intermittently at the moment and will have regular posts sometime next month.


Whether you choose either route or both, neither shall dissapoint as I know you will find satisfaction in the words I have crafted.

ENJOY OH INTREPID READER, and if you wish to connect with me further, my TWITTER AND my writing blogs on YOUTUBE are at your service:

Forget the idea that Cliche's are terrible taboos.Embrace Cliche's. Own it.Every great writer has them in their stories, but they enchant their readers in a way where they don't care they're read...
