Meet ‘Amos Lee’ Fan Delia Lee, Author to be Comic Artist and Writer April 13 2012

Meet 9-year-old Delia Lee, who is becoming an author and is our first young comics writer and artist featured on our blog. She wrote and posted us a letter, and shared a comic she drew. In her letter, Delia insists, “I AM A CHILD! SERIOUSLY!”

We believe you, Delia and must say that you are a very accomplished child with a great ear for dialogue.

The comic brings to life a conversation she had with her mum which resulted in her mail to us. In the comic, her mum informs Delia that the hardest part of becoming an author is finding a publisher. An avid fan of The Diary of Amos Lee, Delia hits on contacting us at Epigram Books with her ardent proposal to publish her comic “if it is good”.

Having studied in Macau for 7 years, Delia says studying in Singapore is more fun and tells us about a schoolmate in Macau who wants everything everyone else has. Stay tuned next week to read in Delia’s letter, what this girl does when she is refused. A master at manipulation at such a young age…

Delia, we had a blast reading your comic and would like you to keep drawing and writing your witty stories with such snappy dialogue. We’ll be glad to receive a manuscript from you for your first comic book.

We send our love, from all of us at Epigram Books. Thank you for making our lives at work special and extra-fun with your heartfelt letter and comic!
