Witty delivery

Shamini Flint talks about her latest novel at Monument Books
I thoroughly enjoyed the Inspector Singh Investigates book launch tonight at Monument. The audience was treated to a detailed overview of the book series, of which the Cambodia book is the fourth, by the author, Shamini Flint, who was witty and charming in her delivery. She gave an interesting insight into the life of a novelist, a career she took up after dabbling successfully as a lawyer and then to while away the hours of being a 'stay-at-home' mum. Her books describing the crime-solving adventures of the fat Sikh detective will continue with a fifth book set in India, where her previous Singh books have proved popular, whilst at the same time, Ms Flint also turns her talents to writing children's books, which have also proved to be well-liked, albeit by a different audience. AsiaLIFE magazine were in attendance, having interviewed the author before the launch took place. It was amusing to hear Ms Flint's reactions to a review of her book in today's Phnom Penh Post 7 Days magazine, particularly as I had raised an eyebrow at a couple of comments myself when I read the same review earlier this morning.
