Apart from art, I have always loved writing, albeit in English as opposed to my native tongue, Tagalog. When I was in my teens, I used to pour my apprehensions and anxieties into poems and essays which helped sustain me through those troubled and uncertain years. Decades after, a family tragedy happened which moved me to write again. My first book, A Life Reclaimed (How a Quadruple Amputee Regained Control of Her Life), was published in September 2009.
Fast forward to 2013 and I found myself writing again. I just finished a children’s story, My Lola and I, and painted the cover and interior illustrations. It is set in the Philippines and based on memories plucked from my childhood. It is now available in ebook version.
To read about it, put the cursor on “My Books” and click on either A Life Reclaimed or My Lola and I.
