While promoted as a romance, Happy Endings, Thien-Kim Lam’s debut is also about strong women supporting each other, sex positivity, and what gentrification does to small, minority-owned businesses.
Thien-Kim writes stories about Vietnamese characters who smash stereotypes and find their happy endings. A recovering Type-Asian, she guzzles cà phê sữa đá, makes art, and bakes her feelings to stay sane. Thien-Kim is also the founder of Bawdy Bookworms, a subscription box that pairs sexy romances with erotic toys. She’s been featured on NPR, BBC America, and NBC.
Thien-Kim also writes about multicultural parenting at I’m Not the Nanny and has been featured on NBC News Asian America, BBC World, and NPR’s All Things Considered.
She’s written for Momtastic, YourTango, Frolic, NBC News and other outlets.
Thien-Kim is represented by Tara Gelsomino at One Track Literary.
