About Me

My name is Thavry Thon, I am an independent writer and an inspirational speaker based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I was raised in a farming family on a remote island on the Bassac river. I received a bachelor degree from the University of Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic with a major in Information Management in 2012.

I published an autobiography titled “A Proper Woman,” in English, in January 2017, and translated into Khmer in September the same year. In 2019, translated into Czech, and by 2023, will be translated into French. I also wrote a few other semi-biography books called “The Captain of life” Part I, &II, co-writing a book called “The Journey”, “Not give up”, “Nisai” which aims to inspire Cambodian readers to fight and follow their dreams despite all the odds and cultural norms.

Beside being an author, I am a co-founder of the Seavphovjivet publishing house founded in October 2018 (, as a way to ensure Cambodian authors are best able to share their works with an ever more interested Cambodian audience. I have been following my dream of seeing the world since she was 18, visiting many European countries and Asian countries, and America, and I never stop writing.
