Ann Sepino

Biography

"Fairy-tale fantasies for the heart."

Hello everyone! My name is Ann, and I am an independent Filipino author with a passion for poetry and writing. My love for writing began at five years old, when I drew a picture book as part of my kindergarten project. My fascination with romance novels began at fourteen. I lean towards creating female protagonists with characteristics such as loyalty, longevity and inner strength.

I love writing about knights-in-distress and damsels-in-shining-armor. I also enjoy referencing and incorporating Filipino or Asian culture into my stories. When I'm not writing in my notebook or typing on my laptop, I'm probably binging on anime, drawing on my sketch pad or killing it at karaoke.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I first started writing when I was five. I wrote a short picture book for a homework in kindergarten. I haven't been able to stop writing short stories since.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small village in the Visayas. I guess it influenced my writing style. I use calm words, and only add in swear words when necessary. I rarely write love scenes and violence. My village is somewhat conservative, and I think it rubbed off on me.

  • The Cowgirl Who Loved Horses, Queens of Montana Bonus Book on May 25, 2013

    No matter how many more ebooks I read, Cecily remains one of my favorite characters. This novel is the sweet read that left me sighing and smiling after being read.
  • Whispers in the Dark on Sep. 08, 2018

    This book is a delightful retelling of the well-known myth, but incorporating a different concept and twist to the story. Not going to go into details, because I might spoil it. I only wish there could have been more interactions between the two main lovebirds, but it's okay. Overall, I enjoyed it.
