Writing may be the only pursuit that M. Paramita Lin hasn’t accidentally stumbled into. She’s also been a paid companion to the third wife of a tycoon, toured the world with musicians, and apprenticed as a goldsmith in Italy, in between hanging out with triad members and living in a succession of haunted flats in Hong Kong.
Lin has been published in the anthology Landscapes by Calyx Press, received an Honorable Mention from Glimmertrain, and nominated for Best of the Net, (as Maloy Luakian). She regularly contributes to The Takeout and also writes about Asian pop culture and history for publications including the South China Morning Post.
Lin’s stories are mostly set in Asian cities, and they are often funny, occasionally strange, sometimes scary, but always true.
