Biography

Edmund worked as a correspondent in Paris for an Anglo-French paper as well as AFP Relaxnews.

During his stint in Paris, he wrote for Financial Times, The Independent, Scotsman, The Australian and the South China Morning Post. He also wrote for Flaunt and Blackbook.

The stories he writes run across a wide spectrum of interests. He has tackled fashion; interviewed fashion photographer Helmut Newton, and Gallic couturier/enfant terrible Jean-Paul Gaultier. He has penned investigative pieces on subjects such as the world’s first computer hacking school and the subversive French swingers clubs. He also has an eye for history and culture; in one article, he recounts the tale of the twin literary cafes - Cafe de Flore and Les Deux Magots - which played host to surrealists and existentialists post-Belle Epoque.

He has published fiction in the Broadcast 2: Picture Thinking & Other Stories anthology. Wee is the author of The Narcissist.

Wee has three Master degrees: an MA in Writing from UK's University of Warwick, and Masters in English Literature and in Art & Visual Culture from Paris' Universite Denis Diderot (Paris 7).
