The authors of the Jayden & Janelle series are two passionate Singaporeans, who enjoy writing. They were inspired to develop a children’s book series about Singapore which their children could relate to.



The authors felt that SG50 Celebration Fund provided a great opportunity to develop such books on a larger scale; to encourage children to learn more about their home Singapore and inculcate a sense of belonging through channels they are familiar with. 

Seema graduated from the National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2005, and has been in the public service for close to 10 years. She is currently also pursuing a Master in Tri-Sector Collaboration at Singapore Management University (SMU).

Harsha, also a graduate from NUS embarked on her career in the banking sector. Currently with DBS, she has more than 10 years experience in the field of customer service.

Both are full-time working mothers. Seema has two children, aged 2 and 4. Harsha has three children aged 2, 6 and 8.
