Criminal Minds. Dystopian Experiences. Life Adventures.
Joelyn is a Fiction Writer by whenever, inclined to the genres of Crime, Dystopian, and Philosophical fiction.
Her writing has been published in Happiness at the End of the World, Bubble G.U.M., CERIPH: The White Issue, and 1000 Ways to Die (Twntysmthg). Her most recent piece of work appeared in Ayam Curtain, one of the few anthologies featured in the Singapore Writers’ Festival 2012.
Joelyn was featured in TODAY (2009), and blogsites HereBeGeeks and Aspiring Mangaka Writers Group (2010) as an entity of the Happy Smiley Writers Group. She was also interviewed by The New Paper (2010) on her efforts to use fiction to raise funds for Very Special Arts, a non-profit organisation.
Her interest in crime fiction emerged from characters like Sherlock Holmes, Lisbeth Salander, and Jason Gideon. Apart from deepening her interest in the genre, these influences pushed her to focus on character-driven fiction pieces.
Joelyn attained her Bachelor in Mass Communications (Public Relations & Journalism) from Murdoch University in 2010. She hopes to pursue Graduate education in Creative Writing, Criminology, or Behavioural Sciences in the distant (or not so) future.
But when she’s not busy with life, Joelyn can be found indulging in museum trekking, amateur calligraphy and embroidery, pinball, air pistols (pending!), or being a general enigma. She is currently working on a novel series set in Singapore.
She is also available for reviews, readings, and events. Please contact her at email@example.com for her full resume and portfolio.
