I am from the Philippines, living in Cagayan de Oro City in Mindanao and married with three kids. I am originally from the historic province of Bataan in Luzon and spent the first nine-and-a-half years of my life there.
How did I get into writing? I joined Toastmasters International back in 2003 and several speech evaluators said that I had a talent for storytelling. Since then, I've won speech contests and learned to conduct seminars and lectures. Storytelling was a big part of this and I guess writing was the natural offshoot.
Favorite authors: James Herriot, Tom Clancy, Michael Crichton, Stephen King and whoever will be the next favorite.
