My Progress

If you follow the links on the wattpad story, I have updated up to Day 6. These are small instalments as I carve out time to write. Feel free to leave encouragement on the story.

What I Write

Writing Sample

Since I don’t yet know which direction the work will take, I am not posting a writing sample. If you’d like to get a feel for what I have written in the past, feel free to visit my WordPress blog with free fiction and links to past work. (

What I Write

I write science fiction and fantasy and a lot of my published work falls in this category. I also write non-fiction and have published memoir and poetry.


My science fiction and fantasy work has appeared in Clarkesworld, in the Apex Book of World SF 2, The End of the Road anthology, Mothership: Tales from Afrofuturism and beyond, Philippine Genre Fiction, Philippine Speculative Fiction, Bahamut Journal, Interzone, and Lightspeed Magazine.

My Write-a-thon Goals

Writing Goals

I’d like to take this write-a-thon as an opportunity to come back to writing again. I’m taking a break from the usual and writing what comes as it comes. Just for this write-a-thon I’ve created a Wattpad account where I plan to write and publish what comes out of this process. ¬†Feel free to follow me there.

Fundraising Goals

The work is free to read, but every dollar you donate to the workshop is an encouragement for me, the writer, to keep on writing.
