    the thing I love most about Jan Xu is that

    as much as she’s a badass werewolf pack leader, she’s also a mom. so I drew her with her kids Aurora, April and Aidan where she’s happiest. 

    you can read all about her and help Joyce out by referring to this post!

    This is SO AWESOME!!!!

    For Free Comics Day!. :)

  4. Going Home: A CNY Flash Fiction

    The 15 Days of the Lunar New Year has come to an end. To mark the end of the festivities, here’s another Chinese New Year-related piece of flash fiction, this time by Joelyn, our Other Consulting Detective.

    Enjoy!

    Going Home

    “So when will you go home?”

    The question he overheard echoed in Min-Yan’s head as he smiled to himself, his fingers wrapped around a cup which he put on the wooden table top. The word ‘home’ never meant much to him, it was something he never really remembered, to be exact.

  7. Green & Lady White: A CNY Flash Fiction

    Vellum & Ink wishes all readers a Happy Lunar New Year and Great Fortune!

    As we usher in the Year of the Snake, here’s a piece of flash-fiction from Joyce, our Pack Leader, to all of you. Enjoy!

    Green & Lady White

    Green wets her finger into the bowl of water and gently curves an arch on the yellow wonton skin. Deftly, she folds the wonton into half. Done, the wonton joins the rest on the plate, filled with juicy meat and chopped chives.

    Her jie-jie will enjoy this New Year treat.

    I’ve read and enjoyed many books by Wena Poon. However, when Alex y Robert was released, it was not easy to get in Singapore (unless you were buying it from online), and I finally got to read it after chancing upon it in one of our libraries.
