Sharon Ismail

Sharon started out wanting to make a family scrapbook (because she was pregnant and bored) and ended up writing her first children's book.

 

She gave birth to her first book before her first child and alternates between books and children in the past 10 years. That first book "What Sallamah Didn't Know" has been a Primary 6 English text under MOE's STELLAR syllabus since 2011 and its sequel "The Ghost with Dirty Feet" was released in 2017.

 

In between, Sharon wrote Makan Time!, an English/Malay picture book for pre-schoolers because she LOVES food.

 

Current score: 3 books, 2 children.

 

She is also a lecturer at a polytechnic, and acts and hosts for television when she is not busy writing books or eating. She is currently in labour with the third and final book in the Sallamah series.
