After a successful career in advertising in Singapore, James Lee turned to full-time writing for children in 1996. The 200+ books in his ‘Mr Midnight’ and ‘Mr Mystery’ series have been translated into ten languages and have sold in excess of 3 million copies. The Singapore Straits Times once called him ‘Asia’s most popular children’s author’ and this success was recognised when he was awarded the inaugural 2013 Australian Arts in Asia Award for Literature. His new series for children is called Ghostworks. James returned permanently to Australia in 2010 and lives in Melbourne.
