About Me

Heidi Shamsuddin

Heidi is an award winning author of stories inspired by Asian mythology and history for both adults and children. She was born in Malaysia but has lived in America and the UK where for a short while, she arrested ships and did all manner of lawyerly things. She has since returned to her homeland and is now doing what she loves best – making up stories.

In 2012,  Heidi won the regional prize for the Eye Level Children’s Literature Award and has since written a middle-grade time-travelling series, short stories for adults and picture books for children. More recently, she has completed a YA novel set on Mount Kinabalu and is now working on producing an animated series after winning the IPCC Award in 2017.
