Tan Ter Cheah was a Humanities scholar at pre-university and later studied law at NUS. She obtained her professional accountancy qualification while working full-time in the law division of a government body. She has practised as a tax lawyer and also worked on tax advisory matters in one of the Big Four accounting firms.
Ter Cheah lost her right leg to synovial sarcoma at age six and her first book, ONE, is loosely based on her recollections. It was nominated for Best Young Adults’ Title in the 2016 Singapore Book Awards.
She is now happily married with two children and remains in the area of tax, working part-time. She spends a lot of time at playgrounds, enjoying watching her children on the monkey bars and admiring the birds that hang off mango trees.
