Born in Vietnam, he now lives in New York, which is where his dream of becoming a writer was born. In the summer between 8th and 9th grade, he tried and failed to write his first novel, stopping around page 60 (which sounds impressive for a 14 year old, but if you had actually read the unfinished book, you'd realize it was a piece of shit). He wishes he could eat sushi everyday, he has only drank 2 cups of coffee in his entire life, and his favorite book series in the entire world is the Harry Potter series. John Caliburn is just a pen name. His real name is Trung Nguyen.
