About the Authors:
Lesley-Anne and Monica Lim are a mother-and-daughter writing team. Lesley-Anne is still in school so she mostly writes essays and papers, which isn’t quite as fun. These days though, she regularly appears at writers’ sessions and interviews, the latest being the Hong Kong International Young Readers Festival.
Monica runs her own writing business at Hedgehog Commuincations and published a book in 2013 titled The Good, The Bad and the PSLE (Epigram Books).
