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 worked around books for most of her adult life. She has bought books, sold books, marketed books, published books, and now she writes 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, while Sherlock Sam and the Quantum Pair in Queenstown won first place in the Popular Readers’ Choice Awards 2017 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 for the first three books. 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 couldn’t attend the @epigrambooks sale conference because we had to work so we made a video about our upcoming book set in Seoul! (Hint: we most talked about food and Running Man 😬) We’re super excited for you guys to read it AND the extra special short story (Hint: #SherlockSam gets lots of presents and he doesn’t know why!). #ajlow #seoul #korea #singlit #kpop #kiddetectives #mysteriousmasterminds #robots #middlegrade #kidlit #runningman
Not-so-lazy Sunday mornings (hey, we’re still five minutes away from noon!) working on edits for Sherlock Sam and the Mysterious Mastermind in Seoul. Our two robots get a little weird at the end of the previous book—what’s going on!? (And how many misplaced commas will we find!?) Find out this August (About the robots. Hopefully we’ll catch all the errant commas before then.)! #ajlow #sherlocksam #seoul #korea #robots #kidlit #kiddetectives #robots #welovereading #welovebooks #middlegraderocks #detectivestories #editing
We spent the morning creating detectives, suspects, and plotting crimes with these P5 students from Alexandra Primary School! They had so many ideas and we hope they write more stories! You guys were really fun 🤩 Also, many thanks to @book_a_writer for making the arrangements and Sonya for helping out 😁 #ajlow #sherlocksam #creating #writing #imagination #kiddetectives #robots #singlit #workshops #alexandraprimaryschool
