Born 1958, she is a medical doctor, a profession she no longer practises. Her first novel ‘A Hmat T’ya’ (Remembrance) published in 1987 was an instant best-seller. Generally, the theme throughout her fiction is about young women standing on their own feet without over-dependence on the men in their lives, which reflects the reality of many Myanmar women, as by tradition they never had any restrictions on education or work. She has published seven short story collections and twenty novels, many of which were made into box-office hit movies. She has written numerous articles on the environment, and is a keen advocate of keeping the world clean and green.
