Narayan Liu (/Nəraɪʌn Lɪʊ/ in IPA) is a contributing features and news writer at CBR. His slowly developing writing career began with two independently published novellas and a blog that occasionally gets updated. He started writing both after moving from the bustling metropolis of Hong Kong to the tranquil countryside of Sweden. It was a passion he developed at a young age after his first ever book-- put together at the age of eight, using twenty odd sheets of paper and a couple of staples-- received glowing reviews from his mum. Nowadays Narayan writes about films, TV shows, and comic books for CBR as well as language and culture for FluentU. He does this while studying to become a much more skilful writer. You can follow him on his blog (narayanliu.wordpress.com), on Twitter (@Narayan_Liu) or contact him directly at Narayan(dot)Liu(at)gmail.com.
