Huei's writing attempts to capture the beauty of fleeting moments and to find meaning in the mundane. His characters struggle to find their place in a contemporary landscape that feels at once stifling and full of possibility. Impermanence, modern life, and belonging are recurrent themes in his work. In 2019, two of his short stories were selected as semifinalists and finalists in the The William Faulkner Literary Contest and the Ghost Story Supernatural Fiction Award Competition. His work has been published by RCN Media. His debut short story collection will be released in the spring of 2021.
"Huei's story is a hilarious deep-dive into the shadow side of asceticism that addresses the age-old philosophical question: Is it better to deny the sensual world in hopes of reaching a higher state of consciousness or to indulge one's desires and live a life of serial pleasures? Crisply narrated by an angst-ridden writer on his first silent meditation retreat, "King of Dhamma" tickles the funny bone while teasing the mind, proving that Huei Lin is a writer well worth reading."

"... a thought-provoking poke at our modern world with its thin-skinned veneer. Will we remember valuable lessons or will we continue to blind ourselves to our realities? ... a brilliant contemporary romp into questions of balance."
- Gail Morton, Author of Two Weeks with Charlie
"Bit of wry and sparkling writing from Huei Lin... More to come from this promising writer, we think."
