Yin Leong was a journalist and editor in Washington, D.C., covering regulatory news. She grew up in Singapore listening to her mother’s ghost stories. She knew since she was five years old that she wanted to write.
She now writes fiction full-time. She lives in Virginia with her husband and dog. When she’s not writing, she watches horror and superhero movies, and reads all kinds of fiction. Her favorite authors include H.G. Wells, Stephen King and Ben Tripp. She thinks 'Salem’s Lot is one of the scariest books of all time.
The Geomancer’s Apprentice is her first novel. Book 2 of the series, The Forgotten Guardian, was released in November.
Joss Paper is her collection of short horror stories set in the United States and Southeast Asia.
