Tom Ong isn't exactly handsome or witty. Tall? Yes. Nerdy? Sure. Single? Yep—13 years and counting. But he doesn't mind. As an avid boulderer, he's used to being on his own and unattached.
His close colleague, Cassie Green, prefers sport climbing. She's petite, charming, and already taken—i.e., his exact opposite. Despite their differences, Cassie knows that Tom deserves love like anyone else.
“One of my favorite things about stories by Jen Trinh is how the characters have to grow into themselves, become individuals who are more true to themselves, before they can be happy together.”
Real, modern stories
Jen writes funny, heartfelt contemporary romances with diverse Asian American characters. Her debut novel, Crushing on You, was a finalist in two categories of the 2020 NJRW Golden Leaf contest.
She lives in Silicon Valley, where she soaks up the sun and photosynthesizes to power her writing. Or maybe it's all the coffee.
