LATEST UPDATE! April 2022
Thanks for dropping by! I'm Don Bosco, a kidlit author and publisher in Singapore. Recently I've been focused on making gamebooks for kids, also known as interactive fiction.
For a super quick and somewhat random tour — read about the history of my publishing studio Super Cool Books here, check out the cool story+maker workshops that I used to host here, go back in time to a very special Christmas event for young readers here, join the fun at our awesome book launch event for students in Malaysia here, revisit my Storycode workshop about creating quick comic strips here, and join my Gamebook Academy here.
You could also keep scrolling down for more info and photos. Stick around, you'll definitely find something to thrill you!
Super Cool Books is also home to the 100 WRITERS story writing support group, which is co-hosted by StoryCode Singapore.

In 2015, his Sherlock Hong series was acquired by Marshall Cavendish for international release. At the Popular Readers' Choice Awards 2015, his Lion City Adventures book was awarded Best Book in the English (Children) Category and also Best Book Cover, English (Children) Category.
He knows that children love stories which are fresh and amusing, with clever twists along the way — that's the magic formula. His approach to writing stories is all about encouraging enthusiasm, being entertaining, and helping children feel that inside every book is a great reading experience they will remember for years and years to come. If you can accomplish this, he believes, the rest will take care of itself.
He is a passionate advocate of digital publishing technology, and has been a featured speaker at writing festivals and media conferences. He actively encourages parents to read and discuss books with their children at home. He is a local co-organiser for StoryCode Singapore, and a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. On social media, he sometimes posts as #KidLitDaddy.
Here's a fun and intimate introduction to Don Bosco's recent activities.
