Inspector Singh Investigates KL

Good writing comes from extensive reading, organised thinking and a willingness to take huge amounts of rejection and criticism on the chin. I think courses, etc., can teach a few skills and develop the confidence of the writer, but the only sure way of developing a unique voice and finding a story to tell is to try and try again—at home, in private, behind closed doors and for long concentrated periods at a time! The real problem is that we do not bring up our children to read and we disdain any subject that is not examinable. I believe that writers emerge from dynamic civil societies where ideas are being exchanged and explored—not from a vacuum!
Eric Forbes has an interview with Shamini Flint up on his blog.

The Malaysian launch of Inspector Singh Investigates will take place 4:30 - 6:30pm on Sunday, July 19 at Alexis (upstairs in the Sino bar), 29a Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru, KL. Please RSVP via Facebook or contact Shamini directly at

I just read the german translation of the first "Inspector Singh"-novel and loved it! I´m desperately waiting for the second case (due in September 2009) and the third (Due in February 2010). Just read it! You wont regret it!
