Welcome to Lin’s World.
I have a dream. One day, hopefully very soon, my novels can be read by millions around the world. It’s a big dream of mine. However, since I am a stubborn, hardworking Capricorn, I don’t think it’s an impossible dream to achieve. Sometimes, it just takes one person’s believe, vision and courage to create the so-called miracle.
It happened to J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of “the Lord of the Rings”. He feared that no one would read or understand his work, and the novel turns out to be the 2nd best-selling book in the 20th century right behind the Bible.
The same thing also happened to J.K. Rowling, as a penniless single mother, she creates a magic realm full of witches and wizards, attracting readers both young and old.
Nothing is too difficult if you set your mind to it, and if someone recognizes your talent.
My favorite novel is “The Lord of the Rings”, and my favorite genre is fantasy. My first novel, The Thousand Year Promise, is a 75,000-word fantasy-adventure that takes place in an ancient, fantastic realm, where man, beasts and gods coexist.
Unlike Harry Potter, which is written for children, my story is intended for an older yet youthful audience. And while it echoes The Lord of the Rings, my work focuses on a theme of undying love that transcends time and space. It is an intensely character-driven tale about one man’s undaunted quest to fulfill a promise. In the process, he discovers the meaning of true love.
I also completed a mystery-suspense novel “Hidden Scent”, and a crime fiction called “The Price of a Lie”.
