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.

      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 🙂

It was published in "Near & Dear: Stories for Children from Australia and Singapore", edited by the awesomesauce Ken Spillman! It's a story that means a lot to the both of us and we hope more kids will get a chance to read it too! Check out the Grades 5 and 6 kids streaming in for our talk! Thank you for inviting us back again! We always love presenting at CIS and we hope you had lots of fun. Keep on sleuthing! Wait. Is this really a #SherlockSam story? Who is the caped crusader, Chicken Wing? Find out more in Sherlock Sam's Orange Shorts in June! Note: No Eggs or Omelettes were harmed during the process of writing this story. May the Fourth Be...wait a minute... #SherlockSam So we're really curious as to who picked up this copy of #SherlockSam that @epigrambooks released into the wilds as part of the @buysinglit campaign! If it's you, let us know! 😁 Is this a #SherlockSam story? Could this be Wendy? What's happening here?! Watch this space to find out!
