Born and raised in Oregon, Wera Niyom is a fantasy and historical fiction author who started her journey on the largest online writing platform, Wattpad, where she won the 2019 Watty Awards—a writing competition sponsored by the website.

 

Currently, she leads the Asian Fantasy profile and Thai Ambassadors team as part of Wattpad’s Ambassadors program, with high hopes in supporting and raising the voices of authors who specialize in Asia-inspired fantasy. As an Asian and Black author, Wera’s works predominantly feature WOC protagonists and mythology/folklore from around the world.

 

She received her BA in Spanish and most recently an MS in Criminology and Criminal Justice. Outside of writing, she enjoys watching dramas or superhero movies with her significant other and younger brother or eating dim sum with her mother.
