Joyce Chua


Reader & Writer


After her first taste of creative writing when she was twelve, Joyce has been hooked on telling stories. A graduate of the National University of Singapore, where she majored in English Language, she is a fan of young adult fiction (and is now obsessed with magical realism and fairy tale retellings) and has written too many manuscripts that should not see the light of day. Her debut novel, LAMBS FOR DINNER, is a young adult contemporary romance published by the Straits Times Press in May 2013 and she is currently working on an urban fantasy novel. She occasionally rants and raves about her writing journey on her blog, which she welcomes you to visit at
