Hi. My debut book of fiction Though I Get Home  (Feminist Press, 2018) is the premier winner of the Louise Meriwether First Book Prize, and an Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature Honor Title. 

My writing has appeared in Harvard Review, Gulf Coast, Electric Literature, and elsewhere.


Born and raised in Taiping, Malaysia, I now live in New York, where I also work as a software engineer. Below is the face I make when asked "Is your book autobiographical?"
