Lionelson Yong


Hello, all you lovely people!

My name is Lionelson Norbert Yong. I'm a 23 year old fantasy writer from Sabah, Malaysia. Having exposed to books and story-telling since I was child, I have a lexicon of ideas, fictional worlds, characters and cultures just waiting to be brought to life! One of them already did in the form of my first fantasy book, The Ocean Hearth

I am a big fantasy fan. I enjoy reading the works of a wide spectrum of fantasy authors from the big guys like Tolkien and Brandon Sandersen to indie authors that I simply stumbled upon in Kindle. I just love the breath of adventure, mystery and immersiveness of the genre.

For me, I write a mix of epic and dark fantasy. I find it interesting to give magical characters real attributes with a dash of grit and darkness. But despite all that, I still want to keep the traditional "good vs evil" theme of epic fantasy going as it represents real human struggle; although I'll do it with a twist of having some gray areas in between. Because, again, I intend my stories to represent humanity.

Having said all that, I hope you enjoy my blog! I'll be posting here weekly about writing tips, my work in progress and maybe a little peak into my life.

With that being said, I wish you all a nice day!
