Huggs-Epigram Coffee Bookshop


Was at the Huggs-Epigram Coffee Bookshop opening day on March 6. What an awesome array of local books occupying a floor to ceiling bookshelf! Glad Lion Boy and Drummer Girl is occupying a 3rd floor unit.
Robot in My Playground, also published by Epigram Books, was relegated to the top floor. But this is one time when you don’t want the penthouse, because customers can’t get at the book!

Congratulations, Epigram!


The Penultimate Stop


Thanksgiving. Grateful for my Writers’ Group–The Penultimate Stop. There are just 3 of us – Lianne Ong, award winning author of Stacey & the Museums series, Lucy Cheng, a closet writer with an exquisite vocabulary, and me. But just in one year, we have clocked these achievements:




  1. Singapore Hawker Food – written, critiqued and published (Armour).
  2. The Hunted Lion – sequel to “Lion Boy and Drummer Girl” (Epigram), written, critiqued and sent to publisher.
  3. Three picture books for a series for Special Needs – written, critiqued and with publisher now. Will update when it is published!
  4. A 5000-word financial drama – written, critiqued and submitted for Commonwealth Short Story Prize 2018.
  5. An illustrated book celebrating Spore’s Bicentennial 2019 – written and being critiqued.
