Kristel Autencio lives in Manila and works as a technical writer for a software startup. She studied in the University of the Philippines Diliman and have since worked as an English language tutor, a researcher for an online news site, and a web content writer. An avid reader at a young age, her poison of choice is literary, speculative, and crime fiction. Her podcast queue is even longer than her TBR and she is frequently seen laughing with earphones on. Her work has appeared in Manila Bulletin and The Philippine Online Chronicles. She occasionally writes on her reading blog Fanarchist and more frequently loiters on the Goodreads- The Filipino Group forums.
