Tian En was born and raised on the sunny island of Singapore. He has spent most of his life watching movies, reading comic books and playing arcade games.
Inspired by his favourite superhero comics, he hoped to create his own ground-breaking comic book. Upon realising that he can't draw, he settled on writing a novel.
By chance (or fate?), he met freelance artist Soefara Jafney (@soefara) at a cosplay event in 2017. She helped to develop the character designs of the Super Secret and also drew the cover of "The Super Secret Book".
After getting rejected by every publisher in Singapore (a story for another time), he self-published his debut novel "The Super Secret Book" in March 2020. It became a bestselling eBook on Amazon.
He believes in creating family-friendly entertainment that kids wouldn't need to hide from their parents. However, he also pushes the boundaries of middle grade fiction, creating stories with unpredictable plots and thought-provoking themes.
Together with Singaporean YouTuber MiniMoochi, they created a series of read aloud videos on YouTube for those who might not have the means to purchase the book. The videos are well-received by all ages.
He would love to have his stories adapted to animation or live-action, and his ultimate goal is the clichéd dream of being a full-time author. He is always writing more stories.
