Van Hoang



hi there!

My name is Van Hoang and I write novels for middle grade readers and adults. This is how you pronounce my name. My favorite punctuation marks include commas, the undervalued semi-colon; and carets ^.^ I strongly dislike misused exclamation marks! and passionately hate ellipses….
