    • sherlocksam says:

      Hello Dianna (or Kelicia or Kelly)! Book 9 is coming out by the end of this month! And Watson is grumpy because he’s made out of a bunch of old parts that Sherlock and Dad found around the house. So Watson feels old and grumpy:)

  11. Kelicia says:

    Hello Sherlock Sam,
    I went to Jem’s Kinokunia yesterday (25 October 2015) but I didn’t see book nine.

    • sherlocksam says:

      Hi there, it should be at Kino JEM very soon! It is definitely available at the Kino in Ngee Ann City now. But just to be sure, please call the bookstore before going down! Thank you:)

  12. WIll Book 9 Be Out At Popular?

  13. Kelicia says:

    Hello Sherlock Sam,
    I have read book 9 and it is really nice. But why does Eliza’s parents want to divorce? And when is book 10 coming out? I can’t wait till the next book come out!:)
    (By the way, your books are really nice!)

    • sherlocksam says:


      Sometimes, some parents fall out of love with each other and want to pursue separate lives, and Eliza’s parents have decided this is what’s best for them.

      We’re glad you’re enjoying Book 9! We’ve only just started working on Book 10, so it won’t be out until next year:)

  14. ya wen says:

    I love your book R U writing book
    10 now

  15. A.K says:

    Hello Sherlock Sam,

    I loved reading your books. My mummy just bought me book 9 and I am reading it. On page 63, last 4th sentence, should it not be ‘word’ instead of ‘world’?

    From: A.K, 8 yrs old boy.

    • sherlocksam says:

      Hi A.K,

      Thank you for writing to us and letting us know that you enjoy reading our books:) We’re so glad! And yes, you are absolutely correct–it should be “word”! Thank you for having such sharp eyes and pointing it out to us. We’ll definitely make sure to correct the mistake when we reprint the book:)

  16. kelicia says:

    Hello sherlock sam,
    what is book 10 about?

    • sherlocksam says:

      Hi Kelicia,

      Book 10 is titled Sherlock Sam and the Comic Book Caper in New York and the synopsis is at the back of Book 9!

      Thank you.

      Felicia and Adan

  17. manvi mertia says:

    hi!! Sherlock Sam….how was the experience which you had with the students of The Red Rosary High School, today in Goa…..

  18. manvi mertia says:

    Hello…. Please tell us about the experience of the very first book that you’ll have written.. And after our meet today I’ve already told my dad to buy your latest books. But just wanted to ask you whether we can get online. Because after today’s meet I will surely read your all books and suggest my friends and family to read your interesting books.. And I love Detective stories. Please do write many more books……waiting. And if we get Sherlock Sam’s awesome books online please give me the site… Please can’t find it anywhere in Goa. And once again a very big thank you for discussing us with the useful points to write a story and I will love to write a story;]:];] And please tell us that when is Sherlock Sam coming to India from Singapore….;} THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • sherlocksam says:

      Hi there!

      You can purchase our books from our publisher’s website: http://shop.epigrambooks.sg/collections/middle-grade:)

      Our first book is Sherlock Sam and the Missing Heirloom in Katong and we picked Katong because that was where Felicia grew up! The first book was difficult to write because it was the first time that we had written a book together (just like we talked about during our session :D), but it’s gotten much easier since then:) We’re not sure when we’ll set a Sherlock Sam story in India yet because we’ve already planned our next few books, but if we do, we’ll definitely let everyone know on our Facebook page!

      We also love detective stories and that’s why we love writing the Sherlock Sam books:) Keep on reading lots and lots of books!:)

  19. raelynnpei says:

      Hi Kelicia,

      Happy New Year! We’re still working on Book 10 and we’re having a lot of fun! It should be published May 2015:) Thank you!

  21. kelicia says:

    hello again Sherlock Sam,
    Why does Sherlock’s father say “what son?” every time sherlock in naming watson?

  22. Oliver says:

    Hi guys, im Oliver and I an nine. (Pls reply me by email, thanks!) I was wondering if you guys could make sherlock sam tge movie. I would like to be part of it. Thanks!

  23. Kelicia says:

    Hi sherlock sam!
    I would like some advise on how to write a detective story… Can you give me some pls?

    • sherlocksam says:

      Hi Kelicia,

      Well, to start, you should read lots and lots of detective stories! Then try to create some of your very own characters and think of a plot! Good luck!

  24. Kelicia says:

    Hello sherlock sam,!
    Thank you for your advise! Will sherlock sam be a tv show like the diary of amos lee? It would be interesting and if it is possible i would like it to be in jurong. I think that it would be very interesting for fans and maybe some others who may not have heard about your books may also be interested in reading the books after watching the show.
