O U B A T Writing may be the only pursuit that M. Paramita Lin (Chinese name: 林烁) hasn't accidentally stumbled into.
In between hanging out with triad members and living in a succession of haunted flats in Hong Kong, she's also been a paid companion to the third wife of a tycoon, toured the world with musicians, and apprenticed as a goldsmith in Italy. She also got lost on the Great Wall for eight hours and saw (hallucinated?) a goat.
She writes strange adventures full of bad decisions and plenty of fun.
