THIS IS MY PRESS KIT.

My name, correctly spelled, is rendered JY Yang, no spaces between the first two letters and no periods (these are not initials, it is not an acronym). If first names are being used in the text, refer to me as JY (again, no spaces and no periods), and this can be shortened to J afterwards, if preferred.

I am non-binary and use they/them pronouns (e.g. Their books were published last year; They like dinosaurs and succulent plants). If a honorific is required, it is Mx (Mx JY Yang, Mx Yang).

Permission is granted to use the images above for press or promotional purposes, as long as they are attributed to Nicholas Lee © 2017. (Click on the bottom two to save the larger versions.)
