Hiền Nguyễn is a speculative fiction writer who hails from the Midwest. By day she is a social science researcher and by night she writes about Vietnamese ghosts, monsters, and mythology. She is interested in the uplifting and haunting forms of human connection, and how SFF writing can lay those bare. Hien’s work has been published by Invisible City, Fudoki Magazine, Insignia Stories, and All Worlds Wayfarer. She is a mentor for WriteGirl, a member of the Codex Writers Group, and an alumna of the Juniper Summer Writing Institute.
An indoor cat disguised as a human, Hien enjoys going bird watching with her significant other, binging K-pop variety shows, and absorbing hot pot broth like a sponge. Hien is represented by Katelyn Detweiler at Jill Grinberg Literary Management.
