About Me
I am a professional feature writer/journalist/blogger/poet from the Philippines in Asia. I have exhibited my writing and poetic inclinations early on during my elementary days when I was once this shy, unassuming lass. I didn't give up on my dreams of becoming a writer since I believe in my heart that my mission here on Earth is to contribute and touch lives through my pen pushing.

Her favorite authors and writing influences include those of Stephen King, John Grisham, Mitch Albom, Paulo Coelho and Rumi.
