Despite an unsettling resemblance to Japanese revenants, Rin always maintains her sense of hummus. Born and raised in Manila, Philippines, she keeps four pets: a dog, two birds, and a husband. Dances like the neighbors are watching.

She is represented by Rebecca Podos of the Helen Rees Agency. She is also fond of speaking in the third person, and may as well finish this short bio in this manner. While she does not always get to check her Goodreads

Thank you. :)

The sequel to The Girl from the Well (it feels more like a companion novel, really) has been greenlit by my editor and is currently awaiting edits, so expect that for August 2015!

I also have a few works in progress, so I'll mention two I'm prioritizing at the moment. If you're familiar with Hayao Miyazaki's work, the first WIP is a bit like an urban Princess Mononoke, complete with spells and monsters and things. The second is a YA fantasy with an ensemble cast. Both books are the first of a new series, and should be done by the end of this year!(less)
