Dedicating my First Book to my Dad

This is for you dad… For being the greatest storyteller that I have ever known, for believing in me, no matter what; for allowing me to be different, come what may; for being there for me, however difficult and finally, because I   promised… even if you are not here anymore’.

This book was written as a surprise gift to my dad because he would always pester me to put my writing on a platform and give it a formal shape. I always would scribble things to him and he would file it. Unfortunately, he died when the book was 2 chapters short of completion. I almost shelved the manuscript for four years before having the courage to bring it out again. I hope my dad is watching from wherever guardian angels live and look at the people they love.

My first book, Sia published by Frog House, an imprint of Leadstart Publishing, is available online and in bookstores. In Singapore, Sia is available at Select Books, Singapore

  2. I have just finished reading Sia. Awesome job done. The story is sensitive and thoughtfully woven. I just loved the ending. The fact that there was no malice or ill feelings involved was very touching. As a reader I was left with a satisfied and contented feeling. We are all very proud of you and wish you all the best! 🙂
