ABOUT THE AUTHOR

A.J. Low is a husband-and-wife writing team!

Adan Jimenez was born in the San Joaquin Valley in California to Mexican immigrant parents.  He became an immigrant himself when he moved to Singapore after living in New York for almost a decade. He has worked for comic book stores, book stores, gaming stores and even a hoagie sandwich shop once. He loves comics, LEGOs, books, games (analog and video), Doctor Who and sandwiches. 

Felicia Low-Jimenez has been a geeky bookseller for most of her adult life. She has bought books, sold books, marketed books, and now she is trying her hand at writing books. She loves to nap and eat chocolate. She spends most of her free time reading, and, when she can afford it, she travels, usually to look for beautiful bookstores around the world.

Sherlock Sam and the Missing Heirloom in Katong won the International Schools Libraries Network’s Red Dot Award 2013-2014 in the Younger Readers’ Category. Sherlock Sam and the Ghostly Moans in Fort Canning took third place in the Popular Readers’ Choice Awards 2013 in the English Children’s Books category.

Sherlock Sam Books 1-5 have been translated into Turkish by Nemesis Kitap and Books 1-3 into Bahasa Indonesia by Buah Hati.

North American English rights have been sold to Andrews McMeel Publishing and Book 1 and 2 will be published in August 2016 with Book 3 following in 2017. Check out the Sherlock Sam page on the AMP! Comics for Kids website!

ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR

Andrew Tan (also known as drewscape) is a full-time freelance illustrator and an Eisner-nominated comic artist. He illustrates for print ads, magazines and also enjoys storyboarding and illustrating for picture book projects. During his free time, he’s always creating his own comics for the fun of it. In his home studio you’ll find an overflow of art tools of all kinds as he loves experimenting with them. He has already too many fountain pens and tells himself that he will stop buying more. Andrew published his first graphic novel, Monsters, Miracles & Mayonnaise, in 2012.

    Why did youl name the character as sherlock sam. Was it because of his liking towards sherlock? 🙂

      Hi there!

      Yes! That’s exactly why. Sherlock Sam’s hero is Sherlock Holmes. Also, his full name is Samuel Tan Cher Lock which also explains why he’s called Sherlock Sam 🙂

      We’ve always loved reading and writing since we were very young and we wanted to created our own stories and characters! We especially loved reading mysteries so we were super excited to have a chance to write the Sherlock Sam books!

Whee! Thank you! #buysinglit #kiddetectives Author-illustrator and all-around funny, amazing guy, Dave Liew (@pandazen) dropped by Adan's office to pick up some books for a donation drive he's helping out with! This wasn't meant to be a post about our books but more about how cool Dave is as the head of the local #SCWBI chapter 😬 We received this awesome email from a long time reader and it really brightened up our Monday 😬 Thank you, Ryan! This means so much to us!

Hey there! I just got my hands on the fiendish heist in London and I read it like..... 12 times! It's so good! It's full of humour! It's my favourite book series! Let me introduce myself. My name is Ryan and I am 11 years old. I want to be a historian when I grow up. I love star wars and like the fact that you use star wars phrases in the book! I hope that the next book will be the best yet! I wish you good health so you can continue writing books that have no words to describe how good it is! Yours faithfully, Ryan .
