Born in Singapore in 1964, Chan Joon Yee was a very prolific writer in the 1990s. He has written 2 novels and translated one Chinese travelogue. His shorter pieces which included poems, short stories, book reviews, celebrity interviews, advice columns and advertorials, were featured in newspapers, magazines and some trade publications. He has also done ghostwriting for business people who needed to make light-hearted speeches or engaging presentations.
After accumulating a further 20 years of life experiences since his last novel was published in 1993, Chan made a comeback in 2013 with a collection of short stories entitled Spellbound in Chiangmai. This is followed by a humour book entitled Dental Phobia and another non-fiction book Leaving The Pain Behind which explores some of the painful stories behind people who tattoo themselves. He has also compiled his travel stories under Knapsack Notes. All his new books are only published on Kindle.
Chan Joon Yee used to run an upmarket dental practice focusing on aesthetics. A fan of fitness, anti-aging regimes and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), he also holds a Graduate Diploma in Acupuncture. He is currently semi-retired and spends several days a week working on his e-books.
