About the Author
On the night of Christmas 2009, JPH TAN had a dream. She saw herself struggling in a flood and was miraculously transported to a mysterious realm. It was then that the idea for ‘Kate in the land of myths and wonders’ was conceived, and the dream would become the opening chapter of the book. TAN went on to write about the many whimsically strange dreams that she continued to have, even adding some she remembered from her childhood. As such, the many different dreams which eventually became the twelve chapters of the book were written randomly, independent of one another over a period of seven years.
On the eighth year in 2017, TAN finally had a revelation about the entire plot and managed to weave the chapters together. The book was then completed.
