Charles Lonersam

Hong Kong, Hong Kong


I am a computer artist from Hong Kong. I studied computer art in the United States, earned my BFA degree in Communication Art and was 2 semesters away from getting my MFA degree in special effects in motion pictures before I came back to Hong Kong to take care of some family matters.

Although I am a visual artist, I enjoy listening to many different kinds of stories to the point that I decide to pick up writing them as well. Perhaps the only barrier I have is the language problem. As a pure blooded Chinese, borned and raised in Hong Kong, I don't have a natural advantage writing English stories as many westerners do; yet I guess it is always the imagination in a writer's head takes into account first in order to write something delicious to serve the appetite of the readers, and that's what I know I am good at. As for the part about the actual communication, I guess it just takes time for both my English and Chinese writing skills and techniques, knowledge of many different vocabularies, proverbs, etc to grow and develop. It is going to be a continuous effort and I am up for that challenge.

Interests: Writing journals, short stories, scripts, poetry. Reading - any kind of fictions.
