How long have you been writing?
19 years. Since I was in Primary 6, what Americans would call Grade 6. I’ve been writing for most of my life. I caught the writing bug long ago and never stopped writing since.
Which writers inspire you?
A lot! Off the top of my head: Stephen Hunter, Barry Eisler, Gregg Hurwitz, John Ringo, David Drake, Christopher Ruocchio, Marcus Wynne, Peter Nealen, Larry Correia, Robert E Howard, H P Lovecraft and Tom Kratman.
So, what have you written?
As Kai Wai Cheah, I wrote the Covenant Chronicles series, published by Castalia House, and Song of Karma, available through Silver Empire. As Kit Sun Cheah, I wrote the Dungeon Samurai trilogy, Babylon Blues, and now I’ve embarked on a new series, Singularity Sunrise. There’s also a bunch of other short stories and serials, but there are way too many of them to list here.
What draws you to Superversive writing?
The Superversive philosophy. Heroes who are heroic, clear moral values, beauty and romance, inspiring hope, transcendence, the idea of building up civilization. So much modern fiction revels in tearing down the history, the values and the societies that created them. It is time to reverse the damage and reach for higher and greater glories.
What are you working on at the minute?
I’m currently preparing Book 2 of Singularity Sunrise, my latest cyberpunk thriller series, for publication. I am also working on Dawn of the Broken Sword, the first entry in an upcoming science fantasy cultivation series.
Do you read much and if so who are your favorite authors?
I don’t have a lot of time to read much fiction these days. The authors I do read are the same authors who have inspired me.
