------------------------

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 page, she does answer questions posed to her here as promptly as she is able to. Find her at the following places instead:

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)

The Suffering by Rin Chupeco
“The air changes. Then that invisible spider crawls up my spine, tickling the hairs behind my neck.

I have come to know this spider these last couple of years. It whispers there’s something else in the room, breathing with you, watching you, grinning at you.

I hate that damn spider.”

“Then perhaps we should carve a world one day where the strength lies in who you are, rather than in what they expect you to be.”

“Dad says there are more than three thousand letters in the Japanese alphabet, which could pose a problem. There are only twenty-six letters in the English alphabet, and I get into enough trouble with them as it is.”
