Nuraliah Norasid is on the podcast this week, talking with Sally-Anne Lomas. Nuraliah is a writer, researcher and educator with a PhD in English Literature and Creative Writing from Nanyang Technological University (NTU). Her debut novel, The Gatekeeper, won the Epigram Books Fiction Prize in 2016 and the Best Fiction Title for the Singapore Book Awards in 2018. Sally-Anne is a writer, artist and filmmaker whose first novel, Live Like Your Head's On Fire, came out earlier this year.
They talk about Nuraliah growing up in Singapore, the inspiration behind her early stories, how gaming has influenced her writing and how The Gatekeeper examines real world issues within its fantasy context.
