Meet The Author!



Readers may call me Sonia Francesca. Or Angelina Jolie if you like that name more.

My birthday is on November 20th. I'm on my 30's, still single, and still looking faaaaaabulous. I grew up in a pretty normal family. Mom and Dad still alive. I have four sisters, and I'm the second child in our family. I have one niece and one nephew now. I do have a brother, the youngest in our family, but he died at the age of seven. Yeah, that was the saddest moment in our lives. I took up Mass Communication and majored in English Journalism at PUP Manila. Got some pretty cool Cum Laude medal too. *wink wink*

First novel I published was way back when I was at my last year in college. "Kissing Miss Wrong" was the title. I didn't pursue writing when I graduated because I never really thought that writing is a career. I mean, at that time, I just write because I like writing. A hobby, more like it. I had my first job as a proofreader at some printing company in Mandaluyong. But I was still writing at that time. I think I wrote the first batch of my first series, the "Billionaire Boys Club", when I was still working as a proofreader / phone operator. But I only lasted two weeks there. My co-employees doesn't like me because I'm speaking in English when I'm talking to someone over the phone. They thought I'm such a brat and maarte. I think that time I decided that working as an office employee was really not for me. So I packed up and left, leaving all those tsismosas drown in their own tsismisan. I've been a full-time writer since then.

Likes and dislikes? I like people who are funny and witty. People who makes me smile and laugh, and people who makes me feel comfortable. I dislike judgmental ones. I like eating. I don't like crowded places. I like that night. I don't like summer. Obviously, I love rainy season. I don't really like talking much. I like listening more. I like coffee, but I only get to take a sip half a mug a day because I have heart palpitations if I get to drink more than one mug. So I hope that would take away my image of being a coffee addict.

My weird habit as a writer? I like changing my computer wallpaper. At the most, I would change my PC wallpaper for more than four hours. I don't know why but I like... changing wallpapers. Hehehe! I also have this habit of not being able to start writing unless I finish watching all the music videos on my computer. When I'm not writing, you would usually find me snoring on my bed the WHOLE day. I'm not kidding.

Lovelife? I fell in love four times. My first love was kinda serious and a little dramatic. My second love was funny and full of adventures. My third love was pretty crazy, and only lasted for a whole year. My fourth love... ah... this one's a heck-full of headaches. All of it were one-sided love. Yeah, poor me~! But at least I get to experience what it was to have your heart throb and your eyes twinkle, and having the inspiration to write love stories were a huge bonus.

Love once, love twice. Love everytime you have the chance. Its the most wonderful thing that could ever happen to you, whether it ended beautifully, tragically, or just plain sad. But remember the time when you were in the middle of that love? Aren't you... the happiest person alive? :D

Love and peace!
