We have just launched our new reading theme until end of December: Sinister Sleuthing Stories – A Mystereadventure Theme! I am happy to share that I have found the perfect author to feature for our current theme – who else but the prolific local author Shamini Flint of Inspector Singh fame!

Shamini Flint lives in Singapore with her husband and two children. She began her career in law in Malaysia and also worked at an international law firm in Singapore. She travelled extensively around Asia for her work, before resigning to be a stay-at-home mum, writer, part-time lecturer and environmental activist, all in an effort to make up for her ‘evil’ past as a corporate lawyer! Shamini has sold over 500,000 books since she began writing six years ago.
Shamini writes children’s books with cultural and environmental themes including Jungle Blues and Turtle takes a Trip and the ‘Sasha’ series, which are mainly focused on Asia. She also writes crime fiction, the first three books are Inspector Singh Investigates – A Most Peculiar Malaysian Murder, Inspector Singh Investigates: A Bali Conspiracy Most Foul and Inspector Singh Investigates: The Singapore School of Villainy published by international publisher Little Brown translated and distributed across the world. The fourth title in the series published in April 2011 Inspector Singh Investigates: A Deadly Cambodian Crime Spree with more to follow. Shamini’s fifth Inspector Singh novel, A Curious Indian Cadaver, was released in April 2012.
