Welcome to Tiger Spirit

The official website of multimedia author Yang-May Ooi

My name is Yang-May Ooi and

I help people tell their unique stories so they can move and inspire others.


Do you have valuable business insights, motivational advice or a remarkable life story that can inspire others?

Writing an inspiring personal or business memoir can raise your profile and increase your influence. It is also a generous way to share your experience and wisdom with your friends, family and community.

I can work with you as a writing coach so you can craft a compelling business memoir or personal autobiography. Or if you prefer, I can act as a discreet writing partner or ghost, taking on the hard graft of putting together your book based on the stories you tell me in fun and invigorating interviews.

A little bit about me…

Having achieved everything I wanted to achieve as a writer, speaker and performer – and more! – I am passionate about helping others share their unique and inspiring stories.

I love using my talent as a writer to help extraordinary people give voice to their inspiring stories through the written word.

My experience as a writer and public figure over 20 years includes:

  • internationally acclaimed novels The Flame Tree and Mindgame (Hodder & Stoughton; Monsoon Books)
  • an award-nominated business book International Communications Strategy (Kogan Page)
  • a family memoir (Urbane Publications) Bound Feet Blues and a five star solo theatre play of the same name (Tristan Bates Theatre) and
  • author appearances incl. the Oxford Literary Festival and a TEDx talk
  • editing, ghostwriting and group facilitation for charities & non-profits

Please do take a look around my website and especially the Tiger Spirit Blog. If you’d like to get in touch with me, please go to the Contact page – I’d love to hear from you.
