Catherine Tinker is a dear friend from the Swoon Reads community. I’ve known her when I was just a new member so I got really excited when she submitted her manuscript to the site! You don’t know how happy I am when Reconnected got chosen – and now I get to feature Catherine on my blog! ❤

Angel C. Aquino has been crafting stories in her head and on paper ever since she was a little girl. After she graduated from college, she pursued her passion for words by working in the publishing industry, and later became the managing editor of several magazines such as Candy, Runner’s World Philippines, and Good Housekeeping Philippines. Her short story, “The Bucket List” was published in the Summit Books anthology, Coming of Age.
Love At First Run is her first novel. Though this story is not based on her life, it’s inspired by some events that transpired in 2005, when she joined AMCI Mountaineering Club. She just wanted to climb mountains, but she didn’t know she had to run as part of the training! Since then, she has grown to love running, which relieves her stress and inspires her to come up with new story ideas. So far, she has finished one full marathon and several half marathons in the Philippines and abroad.
Today, she is a freelance writer, editor, and content creator based in Manila. She believes she can make her tiny corner of the world just a little bit brighter by writing stories filled with positivity, hope, and love.
Helen Hoang is that shy person who never talks. Until she does. And the worst things fly out of her mouth. She read her first romance novel in eighth grade and has been addicted ever since.
In 2016, she was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder in line with what was previously known as Asperger’s Syndrome. Her journey inspired THE KISS QUOTIENT, which comes out in June 2018 with Berkley.
She currently lives in San Diego, California with her husband, two kids, and pet fish.
Helen is represented by Kim Lionetti of BookEnds Literary Agency.
