ABOUT ME

Reading has become my passion since I was in high school. Then writing my own stories just followed. Never in my wildest dream that I'll be invited to be a paid writer. Reading and writing are just hobbies that I really enjoy other than movie/drama series marathon, singing, dancing, cooking and making arts and crafts. I hope that you'll all enjoy my romance stories with a little touch of drama and comedy. My educational background is more on the logical and analytical aspects, finishing Bachelor of Secondary Education Major in Mathematics, and completing 18 units for Master of Education in Mathematics and all the academic requirements for Master of Education in Research, Measurement and Evaluation. Since I resigned from my stressful job in 2010, I've been doing lots of freelance jobs which included tutorials, research assistance, statistical analysis, and more. My stories are all set in a fictional country called, Filipinas. Although the national language of my fictional country is Filipino, all my stories will be written in English. All the places and characters in this fictional country are also just pigments of my imagination. In this fictional setting, I get to write with infinite possibilities. Happiest reading to all of you! I will be uploading new stories exclusively for Dreame. I will also upload the revised version of my pre-loved stories from another reading/writing platform. I'm very happy to be here at Dreame. So watch out for my stories soon...

Jacob Ivan Tan received an early morning call from his paternal grandmother, Agnes Tan, who was the only person in their family who calls him Jacob instead of Jac. His grandmother who was already in her 80s just recently came home to Filipinas for good after living with his paternal aunt, Aunt Andrea, in Shanghai. Sleepily, he answered, “Yes, Lola.” Lola Agnes spoke up with authority, “Jacob, I’ll be visiting a childhood best friend early this evening for dinner in Beaunne City. I want you to accompany me. Fetch me at 5 PM. Afterwards I will be staying with your Uncle Sergio’s place in Beaunne City for a while.” He couldn’t say no to his grandmother. He was quite pampered by her while growing up, “Okay, Lola.” Later in the afternoon, Jac dropped by at Belle’s Culinary School in Zenith Tower to get the French pastries. He told his sister, “Lola insisted that I pay for them, so how much does everything cost?” Belle responded, “I’ll just send the bill to your office,” then teased her older brother, “I smell something dubious regarding this, Kuya. I have a feeling that Lola will play as a matchmaker.” He reminded his one and only sister, “You very well know that before and after Anna, there has only been one woman that I’m particularly interested to pursue.” Belle was close to both his brothers. “Yeah, I know. But Jacqui Avila is so aloof with men. You might have met her quite a few times already but up to now you still haven’t made a move. More than two years had already passed since you last dated.”

Keren responded, "I really don't mind, Lola," and then she decided to leave. When she already left, Neil asked her grandmother several questions. His first question was, "Is she the daughter of the Montelibano that you once matched with Dad, Lola?" His grandmother affirmed, "Yes, " and then asked him back, "Why are you asking?" He explained, "Well, I am just curious as to why her surname is Montelibano? Does she not have a father? And why is she delivering you scented candles. She is a Montelibano so she is supposed to be very rich." Lola Leonor satiated his curiosity, "When her mother died and her father decided to legitimize his son and daughter form a previous relationship, she decided to use her mother's surname. I think that it had been pre-arranged by Claudio Montelibano before he died knowing about the other offspring of his son-in-law. After such, Keren opted to live an ordinary life away from the upper class society events and just focused on her studies and continuing the charity works of her mother. The scented candles are part of the fund raising campaign of the haven she established for the elderlies, battered woman, and homeless children. She converted the ancestral mansion of the Montelibanos as a safe haven for all those underprivileged people." Such had just been the beginning of Keren's numerous encounters with Neil. How will their love story unfold?
