Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the Philippines and I don't actually know what urged me to write. I just saw myself on a usual day writing a few drafts on my notebook.
When did you first start writing?
As I remember, I first wrote when I was 10.
What is your worst fear?
What I fear most is losing those people I love. Or seeing them from a far. Or seeing them love someone else without noticing me.
What's the story behind your latest book?
An author on wattpad asked me what I fear most and gave me time to think of it. And I did. When I found the answer, it came up like this: I fear losing those people I love the most. Seeing them from a far or not actually being with them.
So, I thought of something I can make out of my fear. And I ended up writing about three creatures falling in love with an angel. BUT since it's forbidden, they'll also fear losing that angel they love.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Those books I read when I was little.

Writing brings me to another world and makes my imagination wider more than I expect.
Who are your favorite authors?
John Green, J.K Rowling, Kristin Cashore, Jay Asher and thousands more I couldn't name one by one.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am an it girl so I actually surf the net, facebook, IG, twitter, or I read books and watch movies or play with my dog or cuddle with my mom.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The mere fact that God made me alive and breathing each day is a blessing and I make it an inspiration to strive hard each day.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on a sequel of my first ever finished story: Ang Palpak Kong Lablayp in which was made in Filipino medium.
