The Great KidLit Showcase and an update on my second children’s book

A belated thank you to author and tireless promoter of Children’s literature Don Bosco for including me in his Great KidLit Showcase.

Speaking of KidLit, I have finished writing the text for my next illustrated children’s book, The Ocean Above Her. I am now in the process of finalizing the artwork before looking for a publisher. Here’s a sample illustration from Christian Oliver Cruz. This work was done with coffee stains, watercolour wash and ink.

Thank you to Kenny Leck, #BooksActually and the #SingaporeBookCouncil for inviting me to this #BuySingLit 2020 panel. Thank you also to everyone who attended last Saturday’s event despite the current coronavirus situation.

Three writers of fantasy, speculative fiction, and science fiction discuss the potential in their genres for articulating our politics, and new visions of the future.
