I’m always looking for more awesome Asian authors, so I was glad when Joyce Chng reached out to me. She has written a ton of fantasy stories, some with dragons, some without. But I’m sure all of them are great. With so many different series and subgenres within fantasy, she’s sure to have at least one book that’ll capture your heart.
Born in Singapore but a global citizen, Joyce Chng writes mainly science fiction and YA. They like steampunk and tales of transformation/transfiguration. Their fiction has appeared in Crossed Genres, The Apex Book of World SF II, We See A Different Frontier, Cranky Ladies of History, and Accessing The Future. They can be found at A Wolf’s Tale (awolfstale.wordpress.com) and at @jolantru on Twitter.
