Please click below to hear how I usually pronounce my name. In Vietnamese, the naming convention is Trần Thanh Trang. I’m okay with either pronunciation as long as you know Trang is my first name!
Yes! For many years I wrote in fandom spaces but self-rejected ever putting my stories out there. For a myriad of reasons including survival and bills, I studied public health, then worked as a data analyst for programs helping homeless families and low-income HIV+ individuals in NYC. When I was finally in a stable enough place, I decided to chase my dream and wrote the book that will be my debut.
For aspiring writers, it’s absolutely okay to just write for yourself until you’re ready to share — but don’t self-reject forever!
