I grew up in Southeast Asia. My first experience with America was when I was six years old. Sometimes I amuse my friends by telling them stories of my first impressions of this country (clean bathrooms, Toy Story, Taco Bell, getting lost in department stores).

My family moved to California when I was eleven and completely changed the course of my life. On the outside I'm a well-adjusted American adult, but in all honesty some days I still wake up to the sound of the grass being cut by machetes.

I have traveled a fair amount and lived in four separate countries. I see the world very differently from most people that I know. And because I am an analytical introvert I try to understand everything in my life. I pour this into my writing.

E.B. Dawson Probably Margaret Hale and John Thornton (North and South). But Esther Summerson and Alan Woodcourt (Bleak House) are a very close second!

Thanks for the question! I'm sorry for my late reply, I didn't see the notification for this.

While I love Isabelle and Sebastian's story, some of the beauty of it (for me) lies in its simplicity. I started drafting thinking it would be more of a 7k story, and while it ended up being almost twice that length, it was very clear to me by the end that it was over. I think the beauty of shorter fiction is that there is more room for the reader to make the story their own and fill in the gaps and the before and after with their own imagination.

All that being said, I am not against ever writing more in this world. But I have no specific plans as of yet. (less)

The children did not always sound like children to me and I wanted more from the ending, but this was a really cute read and so many of the worldbuilding elements were terrifically original!

E.B. Dawson is on page 160 of 209 of The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles: It feels very much like a Narnia rip-off and yet it's really cute for a Narnia rip-off and I love the cat who lives in the yarn house!

“You will never overcome yourself if you always excuse yourself.”
E.B. Dawson, Out of Darkness

“I saw disillusionment. I saw pain, bitterness, anger--all things I understood very well. But then I saw what was underneath all that. Those were just layers; they weren't the heart of who you are.”
E.B. Dawson, Out of Darkness

“Do you know why you have this crew, Druce? Do you know why we’re all here? It’s not because you always choose to look out for number one, and insulate yourself from the difficult decisions. It’s the opposite. You have never backed down from doing what’s right, no matter what the cost. And you can’t back down now just because it cost you more than you thought.”
E.B. Dawson, Under the Skin

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
C.S. Lewis

“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”
C.S. Lewis

“But no one except Lucy knew that as it circled the mast it had whispered to her, "Courage, dear heart," and the voice, she felt sure, was Aslan's, and with the voice a delicious smell breathed in her face.”
C.S. Lewis, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

“Suppose... suppose we have only dreamed and made up these things like sun, sky, stars, and moon, and Aslan himself. In that case, it seems to me that the made-up things are a good deal better than the real ones. And if this black pits of a kingdom is the best you can make, then it's a poor world. And we four can make a dream world to lick your real one hollow.”
C.S. Lewis, The Silver Chair

“When once a man is launched on such an adventure as this, he must bid farewell to hopes and fears, otherwise death or deliverance will both come too late to save his honor and his reason. Ho, my beauties!”
C.S. Lewis, The Silver Chair
