As an author, my biggest weakness is world-building. I love creating compelling stories around relatable characters, but world-building isn’t my greatest strength.

My friend and fellow author Fred Yu is a master at world-building in his stories. He’s soon to release book two of his sprawling epic set in the world of ancient Chinese martial arts.

Join us for this fascinating conversation about how our cultural differences affect our storytelling and how we see the world. And how Fred uses his past in the banking world to plot his stories.

I mean, excel…really?
