Author has written 6 stories for Fantasy, Historical, General, and Supernatural.
Hello! My name is Alvin, and go by my initials (AJLKS) when writing. I'm pursuing a career in academia (specifically in stem cell biology), but also write fiction, read books/manga, watch anime, and play video games.
Playing computer games is probably my number one hobby. If you're interested in knowing what games I like just search ajlks1994 on steam. I mostly read mangas and translated Japanese light novel these days, though I'm looking out for books from Simon Scarrow, Bernard Cornwell, and R.A. Salvatore. I don't watch much besides anime, the only other series I follow is The Walking Dead and several shows produced by Rooster Teeth.
I used to do Taekwondo (got a 3rd dan), but dropped it after breaking two bones in my right hand in exchange for two bricks. I'd like to get back into it one day. I also do scuba diving. Did you know that the venom of a Blue-Ringed Octopus can kill two dozen people in minutes and has no antivenom? Neither did I, and it was quite a chore scanning the sand at 40m underwater for it.
I don't really have a music taste. It depends whether it clicks with me or not and tends to change over time. That said, I've been listening to Vocaloids and Nightcore for the past few years.
I've been writing for quite awhile now, and only started to publish them online within the past few years. I usually write fantasy, general fiction, and fan fiction. Some of my favorite authors are J.K Rowling, R.A. Salvatore, Simon Scarrow, Christie Golden, and Bernard Cornwell.
My reason for writing is to convert what I experience into something creative that the reader can also experience. Whether that is a moral lesson, an aspect of human culture, a particular feeling in a particular setting, and so on.
I also publish on and under the same pen name (AJLKS), which I'll gradually start exporting to this site too. Do spare a bit of time to check out my works, and hopefully leave a comment/review!
I also recently got a twitter account. No idea how to use it yet :P
