MAGICIENNE _____ This is our thrilling new YA novel coming out November 2016, now read an exclusive excerpt + interviews with my co-author Ning Cai

Ning Cai (above) first became famous as Magic Babe Ning, the multi-award-winning Singaporean magician and entertainment personality. She co-authored the travelogue bestseller Adventures of 2 Girls (with Pamela Ho), and her memoir Who is Magic Babe Ning? was nominated for the Singapore Literature Prize in 2016. She also has a book on creativity coming out, Game of Thoughts, with John Teo. But why she’s here on the Super Cool Books blog is we recently co-authored a young adult novel MAGICIENNE, and it will be published later this year by Marshall Cavendish. It’s part thriller, part coming of age story. With lots of surprises. Ning is the new voice of Singapore fiction. She’s bringing the magic. Look out for our book in all good bookstores from November 2016. In the meantime, enjoy the book excerpt and the interviews with her, via the links below.
