Hafidz Yakob (Brunei)
Hafidz is an orthopaedic surgeon living in Brunei with his wife and three children. He is an avid reader of fantasy. In his mind, he has led great armies, slain dragons, dispatched hordes of enemies, and even toppled an evil god or two. He may not always win the heart of the princess, but with each heartbreak comes valuable life lessons. He is a firm believer that literacy is a valuable skill which is at risk of fading away. It is unknown whether his stories will rock the world, but even if one person gets inspired, he’ll call that a win.
