"I've lived a life that's full I traveled each and every highway And more, much more I did it, I did it my way" -Frank sinatra

A nomadic traveller, novelist, short story author and poet, Ashikin M. was born in Ipoh Perak, Malaysia. Picking up experiences, knowledge and wisdom on the road, her touchstones are her stories, ever observant, without hesitations. Her steps took her from one panorama to another, one backdrop to another, to find the umami in life, which she then turn into her stories, to be written or performed.

She has been many things in life; a reader of law, a TVC model, a strategist for an aviation company, a chief for ASEAN education programs across different countries, explorer of a Singapore technology-based company and currently holds directorship in a Malaysian-based company but her true vocation is a storyteller.

Ashikin M expresses questions and perspectives on human relationships, human relationships with God, moments, nature, cosmos and dreams in nine fiction books published by Laras 99, Roman Books, Rabak Lit and Terbitan Langit in Malaysia. Ashikin M has also written a book with two Indonesian authors entitled The Color of Regret which was published in April, 2021 in Indonesia.

KEJORA is Ashikin M’s eleventh book.
