Merry Christmas!



Happy Dong Zhi (Winter Solstice)!



On Break

On Break


We are nearing Winter Solstice!

Here, have a Dong Zhi dragon (and mouse)!



Dragon Sisters is listed as one of the best dragon series on Book Riot! And Water Into Wine is a hidden gem that deserves more reads!

Thank you! You made me very happy!


An interview with The Unpublishables!

… where I talk about writing, the Southeast Asian publishing landscape and Chinese mythology


November is finally over. Medical appointments, dealing with my anxiety, edits, family stuff… and I breathe a sigh of relief. I am ok with my chronic illnesses now managed (strict diet, exercise, iron will etc). I am now on medication to deal with my anxiety – and it’s – so far – working. The drawback is drowsiness and dulling of some mental acuity which I find annoying because I have a deadline and edits to meet.

Thank you so much for your support though. I am so grateful that you stuck with me, even though I haven’t provided excellent content!

What’s up for December?

1. Finish theĀ Fire HeartĀ edits.
2. Yuletide Mice (if possible).
3. A short trip with my family.

If you love the Heart of the Matter essays, drop me a line. I plan to compile them into a chapbook.

So, hello December!
