Yeyet Soriano has been writing her entire life, first as an angst-ridden teenager, then as a single working woman, then as a married working woman with kids. Though the themes of her written works have changed over the years, she held on to one truth—she needed to write to keep the voices in her head at bay.

Based in Manila, Philippines, her day job is that of an IT manager for the Asia-Pacific region for a multinational corporation. She is married to a man who reads only to fall asleep, and they have three wonderful kids—two of whom love to read and one, only starting to learn to read.

Of Good Deeds, Decorum and Guts

On September 4, 2018, two events highlighted how much I have evolved in terms of guts, decorum and doing good. I was in Singapore for a series of business meetings for a couple of days.


In the morning in my hotel, I went to the restaurant and queued for breakfast, as per normal, waiting to be seated. I was led to one of the few empty tables–the place was packed.  Once the table was prepared for me, I.../>

It's very real, gritty and down-to-earth. I felt the everyday aspects of the lives of the two heroines: perennial contractor Liza and unapologetic sex worker Jo. I believed in the reasons why Jo chose her line of work. I commiserated with Liza for wa ...more

Start Here by Brigitte Bautista
"A collection of #romanceclass LGBT+ shorts of first meetings. I tend to feel that romance is hard to pull off at short length given the fun is in the build up and elaboration of characters, but I am also a total sucker for the UST-to-first-kiss pa..." Read more of this review »
