Summary

Anna is an emerging writer from Perth, Western Australia. She grew up and spent most of her adult years in the Philippines, until she immigrated to Australia to be with her then fiance, and now husband, back in 2012. She grew up in a Catholic family, and she graduated from the University of the Philippines with a Communications degree. She began writing at a very young age.

Her self-publsihed book, Conversations (I Never Had) With Luna is a collection of poems and short stories which explores all the discussions or talks we want to have with both ourselves and other people. It delves into the psyche as well as relationships, and this cannot be more timely than now after a pandemic, where we are questioning all the things that are happening in our lives and what we need to do to survive. It also brings relief from reality – it is a good mix of what was, what is, and what might have been. It is split into five chapters – many moons ago, once in a blue moon, over the moon, promise the moon, and shoot for the moon – all exploring different themes, like works from and about the past, from light to darker topics, about love to hopes, dreams and aspirations – all of which will hopefully engage the reader to go on a journey of words and feel all kinds of different emotions, and make them reflect about life.

Biography

Her latest works include: “…oh, I don’t know…” published on an online literary journal, Lite Lit One, and “cab thoughts: EMP-ty” published on an LGBTIQA+ magazine, Bent Street 3. Her work, “The Surprise Party” (also known as “Random Rantings – PLEASE add me as a friend if you’re NOT…”), was also chosen as one of the works to be performed in the Voices of Women podcast. Another poem, “Got Time?” was shown on the Big Screen at Northbridge Piazza for the 2020 Perth Poetry Festival. Her poem, “Like The Moon Loves The Stars in The Sky”, was also published on Snowdrops, a Wingless Dreamer publication.
