Hi my name is Ivy and I am an award-winning author. I was born and raised in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. My first book Cry of the Flying Rhino (published November 2017) won the 2016 International Proverse Prize. I was a graduate of the MA programme in Writing at Middlesex University where I won the Middlesex University Press literary prize in 2005. My stories have been on BBC World Service and in various journals. My second book Heart of Glass will be out on Unbound in June 2018.

Heart Of GlassI am an award-winning author, born and raised in Johor Bahru, Malaysia's most dangerous city, notorious for shootings, muggings and carjackings. It's supposed to be twinned with Hull but I think it should really be twinned with Sao Paulo in South America for just general violence rating.
But luckily I will be in Kuala Lumpur and not JB. I am travelling from London to make a RARE pu... Read more of this blog post »

J.G. Ballard
“We live in a world ruled by fictions of every kind—mass merchandising, advertising, politics conducted as a branch of advertising, the instant translation of science and technology into popular imagery, the increasing blurring and intermingling of identities within the realm of consumer goods, the preempting of any free or original imaginative response to experience by the television screen. We live inside an enormous novel. For the writer in particular it is less and less necessary for him to invent the fictional content of his novel. The fiction is already there. The writer's task is to invent the reality.”
J.G. Ballard, Crash
