What if your perfect match isnt the one you found online?
In the near future, everyone will have their own Artificial Intelligence Virtual Assistant.
Sarah, a university student in London and the last single girl in her friendship group, decided to try online dating. Tired of all the bad dates, she let her AIVA help her only to discover that it has been influencing every major decision she had made.

Have you ever tried to keep a secret for 11 years?
But apparently, the United Government of Earth has one-upped me by keeping an even bigger secret for three centuries.
My name is Abigail Beckett, and this is 2415; the human race is no longer the only intellectual species on this planet.
“My life used to be full of certainty, and now it’s the exact opposite.”
Abigail Beckett thought life couldn’t get weirder after being thrust into the world of P.O.E. when she was discovered as a genetically affected human. Shipped off to an academy so the United Government of Earth could keep them all a secret, she was finally starting to reconcile her new norm. That was until she was forced to go on the run when an unknown enemy attacked during a field test.
I never wanted a war. All I wanted to do was get things back to the way they were, and to keep those I love safe. But it turns out that everything was just an illusion, that the reality I lived in was all a lie. The world is no place to live, and in order to make a better future, a future that so many had sacrificed so much to try and archive before me, I have to fight.
And to do that I need to find out the truth, no matter what horrors lie beneath it. The web of lies, of secrecy, of betrayal is spun so far and so wide that I have been seeing only a fraction of it. I don’t know if I have the strength to go on, but I do know that if I don’t step up, the world as we known it will end.
My author journey started on Wattpad under the name Shadow Cheah. Before that, I was just a girl who like to scribble stories in notebooks, with a dozen ideas that I have started and stopped. But with encouragement from readers, I finished writing the first trilogy of the Protectors of Earth Chronicles. I self-published the series in 2015-2016 and then life got away from me. But with the pandemic came a chance for me to dive into writing again. Stemming from my own online dating misadventures and a love of SciFi, my book It's a Match will be published in Dec 2021 with New Degree Press. It explores a near-future that is not as sinister as we think, but one that is morally challenging with the advance technologies. And I decided to adopt a new author name to start this new phrase and can't wait to share more under Samantha Cheah.
Are you looking for writing that would elevate your brand or a second pair of eyes? Writing is easy, but great writing is not. I have been writing fiction and reading for as long as I can remember, and also wrote articles that are published in National Geographic, South China Morning Post, Whetstone, GastroObscura, and more. If you need help writing a piece for your brand or a ghost writer, or an editor, please get in touch and we can discuss more.
Are you looking for career or extra curriculum talks for your students? I have taught online and in-classroom since Oct 2020 and offers an author or creative writing talk. As a POC author who did not come from an English degree, I believe everyone has a story inside them. The talks would center on demystifying the publishing industry and breaking down what makes up a novel. And on finding inspirations, incorporating your own experiences, and writing tips.
