Audrey Chin



A granddaughter of Chinese immigrants and a daughter-in-law of the Vietnamese diaspora, Audrey Chin considers herself an in-between person, a traveller between cultures with the knowledge of how to be at home in the moment. She writes to share her world, imaginary or otherwise.

Her debut novel, Learning to Fly, and her first short story collection, Nine Cuts, have both been shortlisted for the Singapore Literature Prize in 2000 and 2016 respectively. Her second novel, As The Heart Bones Break, was shortlisted for the 2014 Singapore Literature Prize, as well as for Best Fiction Title in the 2016 Singapore Book Awards.

Audrey’s short fiction and commentary pieces have appeared in various literary journals in both USA and Singapore. She has also participated in the International Writing Program’s fall residency organised by The University of Iowa.

Formerly a director of two financial companies, she is currently a wife, mother and manager of a private investment firm.
