is a columnist for the Philippines
newspaper. Her quirky humor
and obvious intelligence
has brought her a lot of fans and admirers.
She has published numerous compilations of her columns, a collection of short stories entitled Manananggal Terrorizes Manila and Other Stories, and a small "advice" book entitled Chicken Pox for the Soul.
An extremely talented, if undisciplined writer, I believe she can rise to even greater literary heights if she could break free of her middle class complacency.
