After the great experience with the lecture with the musicians, I decided not to do another lecture until we had just as good a panel. We found out then that we had people coming in from far outside Manila and it had to be worth it. I know how much time is worth and I wasn’t going to ask it of people if it would just be a so-so thing.

Here’s an excerpt from Iris After the Incident! “…and that’s how we ended up with this.” “Well, it’s very good pizza.” “I know, right?” You would think that the nighttime and the darkness that came with it would make those […]
Chic Manila is my contemporary romance series set in the Philippines, with Filipino characters. Iris After the Incident is its 8th book (yay!), but they can all be read as standalones. Start with any book and then work your way back, not a problem.

Carla’s 29 and a whiz at her job: she’s efficient, reliable, and a total genius when it comes to putting something together at the last minute.

We had our first #romanceclass lecture and it rocked! Sorry for the pun! But it did.
On June 12, Independence Day here in the Philippines, the #romanceclass community met again to have our regular book discussion — except we’ve now turned it into a “lecture” series for writers or aspiring authors. What’s the difference? Well, when we used to meet to discuss books, I think the general impression was that you had to read the assigned books first, when the truth was, we didn’t care.

Thank you for supporting the #romanceclass podcast! My co-producer Tania Arpa and I started this project because it seemed like a fun thing to do, you know, getting actors to read scenes from romance novels by Filipino authors.
