Welcome to My World: A Journey of Stories and Dreams

Hello there, and welcome to my little corner of the internet!

I’m Gel, a single mom, children's book author, and lover of all things storytelling. I'm beyond excited to share this space with you, where we can embark on a journey filled with magical tales, heartfelt stories, and a sprinkle of whimsy.

My Story

My adventure into the world of writing began with a simple, yet powerful, desire: to create better quality children's books that promote the right values for my daughter. As a mom, I’ve read countless stories to her, and while many were wonderful, I often found myself wishing for books that truly resonated with the values I want to instill in her—curiosity, kindness, and the courage to dream big.

So, I decided to take the plunge and write my own. And that’s how The Cosmic Ballet was born. It's a poetic and enchanting tale that brings the wonder of a solar eclipse to life, aiming to inspire young minds and fill their hearts with awe.

More Than Just an Author

Before diving into the world of children's books, I was part of the founding team of an online boutique in the Philippines, a venture that has grown to rival even the biggest marketplaces like Shopee and Lazada. This experience taught me the importance of building trustworthy platforms by moms, for moms—a principle that guides me in everything I do, including my writing.

What to Expect Here

This blog is a space where I’ll share more about my journey as a mom and an author. But it’s not just about my books! I’m passionate about children's literature in general, and I love discovering and sharing new stories that delight and educate.

Here’s what you can look forward to:

  • Behind-the-Scenes Glimpses: Sneak peeks into my writing process, illustrations, and the magic that goes into creating a children’s book.
  • Book Recommendations: I’ll share reviews and compilations of children's books that I love—stories that inspire, teach, and entertain.
  • Parenting Insights: Tips and experiences from my journey as a mom, hoping to connect with and support other parents.
  • Interactive Fun: Printable activities, storytime videos, and more fun content for you and your little ones.

Join the Journey

I believe in the power of stories to shape young minds and create lasting memories. Whether you’re a fellow parent looking for new bedtime tales, an educator seeking engaging reads for your classroom, or simply someone who loves children's literature, I hope this blog becomes a cherished stop on your journey.

Feel free to reach out, share your thoughts, or suggest books you’d like to see featured here. I’m always eager to connect with other book lovers and parents.

Thank you for being here, and I look forward to sharing this adventure with you.

With love and stories, Gel
