March Monthly Roundup

Happy Wednesday, friends! 🌺 It’s not yet officially the end of the month, but I’m doing our March roundup a little early to cover a couple of announcements and updates. Then after the very me-centered stuff (LOL) you’ll find the usual list of book reviews and author spotlights, plus I have upcoming events compiled nowContinue reading “March Monthly Roundup”

#ThrowbackThursday: I’m In Love With A Wonderful Guy

Kindred Hearts wasn’t the first time I played a nurse. I’ve also played Navy nurse Nellie Forbush of the musical South Pacific – twice, in fact, since aside from the 2013 production, it was also our school play back in my senior year. The musical’s plot plot centers on an American nurse stationed on aContinue reading “#ThrowbackThursday: I’m In Love With A Wonderful Guy”

#ThrowbackThursday: Hello, Beastie

I’m actually on semi-hiatus this November because of NaNoWriMo, but since this segment has been a favorite so far, here I am bringing you more stories and snippets of my performer life! 🎤 And because it was Halloween just a few days ago, here’s one of me being spooky in 2019. Enter Maleficent. I’m rarelyContinue reading “#ThrowbackThursday: Hello, Beastie”

#ThrowbackThursday: Unicorns, I Love Them

Among my earliest gigs as a character host was a birthday party in early 2019 set to the theme of Minions. Instead of making me go bababababanana, they had me portray little Agnes of Despicable Me. Yeah, it’s unicorn girl! What I wasn’t still wasn’t prepared for was how all the other children would beatContinue reading “#ThrowbackThursday: Unicorns, I Love Them”

#ThrowbackThursday: I’m Trying to Hold My Breath

I don’t know how it started, but three or so years ago, themed parties suddenly became very popular here in my country, or at least here in Cebu and over at the capital. Mostly birthday parties, but there have been corporate and organizational events too, and even weddings (though that one I didn’t get toContinue reading “#ThrowbackThursday: I’m Trying to Hold My Breath”

#WIPWednesday: Four Thousand Miles

Not a new book, but a new Hotel Fen song! While it isn’t the only one in the pipeline — I’ve already finished six other songs for the book soundtrack, outside of Elevator and Writings on the Window — this happens to be the latest one I’m working on. If you paid close attention toContinue reading “#WIPWednesday: Four Thousand Miles”

#TeaserTuesday: Hotel Fen the Musical?

I’ve been joking (and you know jokes are half meant 😉) that I would love for Hotel Fen to be adapted as a musical someday. I’m a fan of musicals, and that’s reflected in the way the songs for the book have turned out, so it’s really no surprise to those who know me thatContinue reading “#TeaserTuesday: Hotel Fen the Musical?”

#ThrowbackThursday: Just Hearts Beating in Time

I once played a nurse on stage, which was hilarious because I’m averse to blood and medical stuff in general. But my friend was in the production and they needed new people for the rerun, and back then I could still afford to attend evening rehearsals while working full-time. Kindred Hearts had a very AContinue reading “#ThrowbackThursday: Just Hearts Beating in Time”

#ThrowbackThursday: I’ve Always Been A Smart Girl

I’ve been delighted to read about musicals reopening on Broadway and the West End… but also a little sad that we’re not ready and able to resume live performances yet here in my province. Restrictions have eased some, sure, and indoor dining is now allowed at 50% capacity for those who are fully vaccinated, butContinue reading “#ThrowbackThursday: I’ve Always Been A Smart Girl”
