Stories with Feels, Thrills & Twists


Creations that Tell Stories & Evoke Emotions


Welcome to my website. I’m Mayumi Cruz and I’m an author and an artist.

As an author, I write in a variety of genres, mixing and blending them in my plots. Twists and turns, mayhem and mystery, kisses and angst, laughter, and tears make up most of my books. My books, Chroma Hearts, a psychological thriller, and The Black Widow, a Philippine mythology urban fantasy horror, have received awards and recognition. Some of my writings have also appeared in Philippines Graphic, Medium, AdHoc Fiction and The Drabble. I have also written the screenplay for “BackPack,” a short indie film on YouTube.

As an artist, I use acrylic and mixed media in my traditional artworks. I also create digital art and graphic designs. 

I’m a true blue introvert; I write better than I talk. I’m a book and movie buff, and I have an extremely sweet tooth. I’m an Economics graduate and have a Master of Arts degree in Educational Management. I currently live in the Philippines with my husband, my three sons, and Sparky, our adorable dog.
