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.

Born and raised in Singapore, Felicia Low-Jimenez has been a geek for most of her life and has written a lot of fanfiction. She was a bookseller and now works in publishing. She spends most of her free time reading, napping and eating chocolate. If she leaves the house, it’s usually to go to a bookstore.

The Sherlock Sam series has won the International Schools Libraries Network’s Red Dot Awards for 2013–2014, and the Popular Readers’ Choice Awards three times. The books have also been published in North America, Indonesia, Turkey and South Korea. An animated series is now in production.

You can purchase copies of the series from Epigram Books or the AMP! Comics for Kids website!

  1. 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 🙂

  2. I love your books Sherlock and you are so awesome come on make me your friend already!!!
    P.S.: do you exist?

    • Hi! I rlly love your Sherlock Sam series because it is mostly based in Singapore, and I relate so much to it, as I am Singaporean myself! 😀 It is so inspirational to see authors from Singapore write such successful book series like these. I’ve introduced my friends to this book series and they love it too! One suggestion: maybe an upcoming book can be about the Supper Club in Jewel Changi Airport. Hehe. Thanks for creating this awesome book series!

      • Hi there! We’re so glad that you can relate to the Sherlock Sam series and enjoy reading the books 🙂 Thank you for introducing your friends to the books too! It means a lot to us. We’ll definitely keep your suggestion in mind for future books–we’ve actually not visited Jewel yet hehe.

    • Hi there, Mackayla,

      THANK YOU!!!

      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!

  3. Dear A.J.Low,
