An Author's Journey: Annie Pacana Lumbao on Writing for Children

Children's book writer, Annie Pacana Lumbao, writes about her inspiration and her creative process on her book But That Won't Wake Me Up (Adarna House, 2010). The article is published in the May 2013 issue of Good Housekeeping (GH).

There's a mention of my name and a quote I made from the forum on Children's Literature by Ang INK last February 2012. It was a pleasant surprise to find Ms. Lumbao's email regarding this write up. Sometimes I wonder what happens to participants after attending a forum. Ms. Lumbao apparently was inspired to start writing for young adults.

The 30th National Children's Book Day is just around the corner. PBBY will be awarding the Salanga and Alcala to two new young artists who are venturing into content creation for children. May young people like them be inspired to pursue this challenging and noble art.

My gratitude goes to the editor of GH, Ms. Lola Abrera. Photo credits to Ms. Annie Pacana Lumbao
