Wong Bik-wan (Cantonese pronunciation) or Huang Biyun (Mandarin pronunciation, Traditional Chinese: 黃碧雲, Simplified Chinese:黄碧云; born 1961) is a Hong Kong writer. She has received multiple literary awards in Hong Kong, and is cited in The Cambridge History of Chinese Literature as a major contemporary writer.


Education and early career

Wong pursued her tertiary education in The Chinese University of Hong Kong, majoring in Journalism and Communication. She then received her MA degree in Criminology under the Department of Sociology in The University of Hong Kong. Meanwhile, she also obtained a Diploma of Legal Studies in the HKU School of Professional and Continuing Education. Apart from her work as a fiction writer, she has worked as a reporter for The Standard (Hong Kong), as a legislative assistant, and as a screenwriter for a broadcasting company.

Writing style

Although her use of words and style often change with time, she still sticks to common themes like death, diseases, love and darkness. Some touch upon the year 1997 when Hong Kong was handed over to the People's Republic of China.
