JustineLaismith portrait (2)

Justine grew up in Singapore and studied Chemistry in London. Since completing her PhD, she has worked in the pharmaceutical, chemicals and education sectors. In 2010, she returned to Singapore, where ST Press Books published her chapter book about two women in STEM. When she is out and about, she takes far too many pictures on her phone. Her excuse? They inspire her stories, like her debut middle-grade book. Published by Aurelia Leo, she penned it in Singapore after a trip to China. She is now back in England living with a talking budgie.
