Book Reviewer for The Biblio-File
To parents of mixed Filipino, Spanish, Chinese and American blood, I was born in Manila, raised in Vancouver, and returned to the Philippines in my early teens. Two decades later, I resumed life in Canada last year, to discover it is still as much home as my native country I'd just bid farewell. I may have left all the countries I have lived in, but those countries have not left me. Manila, Manhattan, Australia, Canada and all the places on the journeys to and fro -- they find their way into my writing. A novelist by craft, a journalist by trade, my work revolves around the worlds words recreate from ours in order to find out where we've come from, who we are, and where we can go.
