Who I Am
My name is Chiao Kee Lim and I love to write! I discovered my love for writing at the age of 9 and have been writing for over 20 years since. I have written in multiple languages (Chinese, Malay and English) and my essays and articles have been published by reputable newspapers and magazines in Malaysia such as the Chinese newspaper Sin Chew Jit Poh, the English publication New Straits Times and Youth Quake, and the Malay publication Dewan Siswa.
I won my first award at the age of 16 and then went on to win two more awards before the age of 24. My stories have since been published in multiple anthologies, two of which adopted my stories as their title.
What I Do
I write! I’ve written both fiction and non-fiction titles, using a variety of styles and techniques I have experimented and perfected over the years. I have my own blog on www.thedirty30sclub.com where I write stories from personal experience and where I also share other people’s stories.
Since its launch in September 2010, that blog has had over 5,900 readers from 91 countries. I have my own column on MSNBC’s Newsvine and I also write for online magazines such as www.motivateus.com and InCulture Parent just to name a few.
Why I Do It
I had a very difficult childhood growing up in a traditional Asian upbringing, and it was through writing that I found my solace. I love to tell a good story and nothing makes me happier than to be able to evoke emotions in my readers and bringing them along on a journey through my words. Over the 20+ years of writing both fiction and non-fiction, I have experimented and learned the different techniques to crafting a good story, which when applied correctly, works like magic every single time. My mission is now to teach this knowledge to others and allow them to express their creative genius through words. I believe that there is a message and a story within every single one of us that needs to be told within this lifetime, and my goal is to equip you to deliver on this mission to the best of your abilities and for you to leave a legacy.
