  • Description
  • About the Author
  • The Haven – a magical place with a kaleidoscopic crowd. A place to lose yourself in. A place to find what you’ve always been looking for.

    Will, who desperately tried to outrun his past, still finds himself gripped by its long shadow. A chance encounter with Donny, the charismatic owner of The Haven, brings him back to Singapore to face the abandoned relationship and regrets he thought he had left far behind.

    Will gets swept up in Donny’s mission to crack the mystery of why Instagram queen Caroline Yum has dropped off the grid without a word. Little does Will know that Caroline will come looking for him, spurred on by the enigmatic Lucien and the cheeky and spirited “Madam Mischief ”.

    This Life Electric, a fun, layered and poignant novel about stepping out of one’s own head and into the noisy world, unfolds the choices made by the people of The Haven, the friendships they cherish and the changes each dare to make.

    Welcome to The Haven. Come, step inside.

  • Adam Tie grew up loving reading and writing. His love for books pushed him to start The Novel Encounter that offers wrapped mystery books to its customers to encourage them to try new things. He started writing poems for strangers when a browser who found him typing on an old Corona typewriter at a vintage fair asked him to write a poem for her heartbroken friend. This resulted in the service where he writes poetry on demand using three-word prompts, and the publication of Finder & Keepers, an anthology of such poems. This Life Electric is his debut novel.
