Dear Don Bosco, thank you for including me in your Great Kidlit Showcase. You are a wonderful advocate of Singapore literature.
Updated my book wall with my two latest books, Lion Boy and Drummer Girl and Jade’s Quest for Her Heritage.
Lion Boy and Drummer Girl was published in 2017 while Jade’s Quest was published in August this year. Thanks to a talk in Singapore Chinese Girls’ School, I was finally spurred to revisit my woefully outdated book wall!

Visiting our art entry – Jade’s Quest for Her Heritage at Book Illustrators Gallery (BIG). Caught up with former writers’ group buddy Emily Lim. I’m cradling Emily Lim‘s Godwit, and she is holding Jade.
Moderated for Lu Hui Yi, Emily Pan and Hanna Alkaf. Meanwhile, my AFCC Retreat 2017 mates Tina Sim, Leila Boukarim and Barbara Moxham were holding fort! Here is Moses Sia with his Tiny Tap presentation.
Asian Festival of Children’s Content is one of the most prominent gatherings of children’s book authors, publishers and illustrators in this region. So, it is an honour to have a public launch for Jade’s Quest for Her Heritage here. Moreover, we will be doing it in The Pod, with a sweeping view of downtown and the skyline.
Illustrator Heng Li Ching’s art will also be displayed at the AFCC Book Illustrators Gallery (BIG).
Please join us for our big day! September 8, 2pm, in The Pod at Central Library, Victoria Street.
