About Me

I’m the son of Filipino immigrant doctors. Our family settled in Northern Michigan where I grew up. After graduating high school, I attend University of Michigan whee I received a B.A. In English. (1997).

My first published work was in Breakwall, a Huron Shores Writing Institute collection of writings published in 1990.

I contributed a foreword entitled “End of the Innocence” in the non-fiction book Awakening: Becoming a Brain Tumor Thriver by Eric Galvez published in 2011.

In 2012, I was a semi-finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel contest for “A Forgotten Innocence,” a love story between high school sweethearts based in Alameda, California. This novel has yet to be published.

My debut novel “Enlightenment” is the first novel in The Bathala Series. This novel introduces readers to Filipino vampires and the forgotten legends of the Philippines through the first-person narratives of Dorothy and Adrian.
