A Life Reclaimed is about my niece, Sheila May Advento, a courageous young woman and a quadruple amputee.

I have always loved writing, i.e., in English as opposed to my native language, Tagalog. When I was in my teens, I used to pour my apprehensions and anxieties into poems and essays which helped sustain me through those troubled years. Decades after, a family tragedy happened which inspired me to write again. My first book, A Life Reclaimed, was published in September 2009!
