#BuwanNgAkdangPinoy: Chrissie Peria

Chrissie Peria

When not obsessing over fictional people doing fictional things, Chrissie obsesses about food: the eating, the cooking, and the procuring of it.

An advertising copywriter in her past life, she now spends most of her time writing, taking photos, cooking, and babysitting a tiny human and a curly-haired dog. She still plays with dolls and she thinks that bacon is the answer.

I Finally met Chrissie! Yes, I met her during the #AprilFeelsDay but I am too shy to approach her. I love her book, All’s Fair in Blog and War! 🙂 I hope I could talk to her this MIBF, #AllTheFeels event of RomanceClass this Sept 18 or the October #FeelsFest

K. C. Cimafranca

Kaith, a thirty-something who eats Admin slash Marketing stuff for breakfast, and gobbles and spits out words for dinner and dessert.

According to her blog, http://www.whatsupkaith.com/, she is a mother, occasionally as a wife, writer, and beauty and makeup (and all things bright and beautiful) enthusiast.


  • Strangelit Incredible Truths
  • Chasing Closure Away

She is my editor and friend. We worked out for my #buqoYA story, Second Sight to Forever. She’s the editor of my #JustWritePH story, Encyclopedia Mystique. Aside from the fact that we are both beautiful, Kaith was my beta reader. We also worked on my #SparkNA story, Princess in Yellow Ribbon (still unpublished.).  I am so blessed to meet her, a generous soul who is letting her commitment to edit a free thing for me. Thank you Kaithy. We will see each other soon! I love you girl!

#BuwanNgAkdangPinoy: Ines Bautista-Yao

Ines Bautista-Yao

Reading and writing are close to Ines Bautista Yao’s heart ever since she was a child. She graduated from the Ateneo de Manila University with a degree in AB Communication Arts. She has been a teacher at the Assumption College San Lorenzo and the Ateneo de Manila University’s English department.

Her debut novel One Crazy Summer was first penned in 2007 when she was pregnant with her first daughter Addie. Being a mother has taken much of Ines’ time so she was only able to write 13 pages of her novel. She completed her story in April 2011, while three-year-old Addie was sleeping and inspiration struck her again. Two months later her story was complete. After eight months, her dream of publishing her own book came true. The book was only launched last January 26, 2012, but Ines is already writing her second novel.

Most readers can remember Ines as the former editor-in-chief of K-Zone Magazine andCandy Magazine . At present, Ines is working as an editor of Summit Books. She is also married to photographer Marc Yao, whom she says she consults whenever she’s stuck in the middle of a story she’s writing.
