I was extremely lucky to do a book talk in December 2019 with 2 talented and lovely ladies:  Elaine Chiew and Laksmi Pamuntjak. We were at Kinokuniya, Takashimaya in Singapore.

I talked about my latest retrospective, SCREAM TO THE SHADOWS while Elaine and Laksmi chatted about their new books, The Heartsick Diaspora and Fall Baby respectively.

The three of us authors are published by Penguin SEA and other than discussing our books, writing in general, a writer’s life and our writing craft.

We were also lucky to have Desmond Kon as our lively and insightful moderator.


That was my last talk of the year and I had never done so many of them all at once.

I’ve told friends that’s because I was making up for all the talks I didn’t do during my time as a writer!
