Both Flash and PB are characters in my backstory.
Let me first introduce you to Flash. Flash is alluring, cryptic, and enticing. She hates waffle. Her entreaties are brief—she just wants to be understood in as little words as possible. You have to fill in the blanks because Flash believes that meaning is created through individual lenses, lived experiences, and backgrounds.
Now, let me introduce you to PB. It was Flash who introduced me to PB, I’ll give her credit. PB loves happy endings, onomatopoeia, and a child-like people. She loves personification and has a big imagination. PB also doesn’t like to waffle and she is a great storyteller, like Flash. Both Flash and PB have so many things in common. No wonder they’re best friends.
But Flash and PB speak to different people.

I am especially keen to work with writers who identify BAME or BESEA (British East and Southeast Asian). Of course all are welcome because Flash, PB, and I believe in being inclusive.
