Michelle is Chinese-Indonesian and an international storyteller and author. She is also a motivational speaker and was invited to speak at TedxTalks in Hong Kong University Science and Technology in 2014. She self-published her first poetry book in 2002, called Truth and in 2013, was a contributing author of Conscious Business, part of the best-selling Adventures in Manifesting book series.


She has worked with various people — from asylum seekers and trauma victims to executive leaders. She is impressed with how a person can rise from the brink of despair to achieve goals previously thought unattainable, and evolve from being a victim to survivor. 


As an Author, she wants her stories not only to be exciting, but also thought-provoking and to leave a positive, lasting impression on the reader; maybe even move people to improve the planet. Environment and conservation issues interest her, and she reflects her thoughts about them in her writing.


Late Dawn is a story that stems from Michelle’s love of speculative and science fiction examining the question of how the Earth is likely to morph hundreds of years from now if subjected, continuously, to humanity’s destruction and carelessness. It is a cautionary tale, but also a story about hope and transformation.
