Wayne’s first book, TALES FROM A TINY ROOM, debuted in 2014. Former DC Comics president, Paul Levitz, called it “delightful”.

In 2015, Wayne’s limited edition fiction experiment, PROMPT (co-authored with Anna AB), sold out over a weekend.

That same weekend, he launched a brand new kids’ cosmic adventure comic series, YELLOW PRINCESS (co-created with Gene Whitlock). Nina Bargiel, a writer for DC Superhero Girls and Lizzie McGuire, said, “Yellow Princess was the hero I could’ve used when I was eight. Unfortunately time machines don’t exist. But thankfully, Yellow Princess does!”

In 2017, Wayne worked with Benjamin Chee to co-create MR MEMPHIS, a comic adaptation / remix of one of his short stories from PROMPT. Since 2017, he’s been a regular contributor and editor for the the annual snackable fiction anthology, PULP TOAST / ROTI BAKAR.

In 2018, his short story, Satay, appeared in the final issue of LONTAR: THE JOURNAL OF SOUTHEAST ASIAN SPECULATIVE FICTION, alongside works by other prominent creators from around the region, such as Sonny Liew, Victor Fernando R. Ocampo, Drewscape, and Cyril Wong.

Wayne was a co-founder of Singapore’s first tattoo magazine, FlashINK. Two of his stories were honourable mentions in Best New Singaporean Short Stories: Volume Two. And he has spoken about writing, at Saint Joseph’s Institution International School (2015, 2016) and at the All In! Young Writers Festival (2017, 2018).
