I never dreamed of becoming a writer or an author. In fact, when I was a kid, I wanted to be a doctor someday. But I knew that I had a talent for writing during my school days. Writing as a profession never entered my mind and never thought that this would be my profession later in life. I was already in my late 20's when I realized this.
So I left my nursing profession in 1999 and made a leap of faith into creative writing. After attending a screenplay writing workshop, I wrote my first screenplay, Sa Likod ng Puting Uniporme (Behind the White Uniform). It is about five stories running at the same time inside a hospital for three days. That same screenplay won Honorable Mention (finalist) in a nationwide writing contest and became my ticket into the film industry.
Maybe a career in show business is not for me. I shifted to writing novels with my first romance comedy, Küng äng Txt i My KüPdö (",). It is about a love story that started with a text message sent to the wrong person. Since then, I have written a few more novels.
I also wrote for Abante Komiks in late 2002 starting with my first comics, Si Aling Mameng. It is about the death of the most-hated neighbor and her neighbors became the suspects.
