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.
In 2017, my short mythological story, Black Love, won First Place in Bookbed’s Fictionary contest. My psychological thriller, Chroma Hearts, was awarded 2019 Best Published Book, and I was recognised Third Best Published Author on the same year by a writing community, Penmasters League Philippines. Chroma Hearts is now also published worldwide on paperback and hardback by Ukiyoto Publishing, a traditional publisher. Some of my writings have also appeared in Philippines Graphic, Medium, AdHoc Fiction and The Drabble. Just recently, I have also written the screenplay for “BackPack,” a short indie film which was shown and can be found on YouTube.
As an artist, I use acrylic and mixed media in my traditional works. I also create digital art and graphic designs. I also do proofreading, editing, book covers, book layout and formatting, and website design.
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 in Educational Management degree. I currently live in the Philippines with my husband, my three sons, and Sparky, our adorable dog.
