Leng de Chavez never imagined herself as a writer as she grew up being warned by older people that being a writer is not lucrative. But because of a hand-sewn notebook given to her by her Tatay Joe during the summer of 2003, she tried her hand in writing fan fiction stories of Nancy Drew and Totally Spies. Since then she couldn’t stop from writing stories.
Leng finished a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Ecology from the University of the Philippines - Los Baños. Some of her published books are: If I Fall, which was initially self-published before being released under Pop Fiction: The Despicable Guy Book 1, which won the Filipino Readers Choice Award for Young Adult Fiction in 2014; The Despicable Guy Book 2, and Hey, Stranger. She also co-wrote Between Now and Ever After. She was among the fellows in the first batch of Eros Atalia Fiction Writing Workshop in 2013. Her short story for the workshop is included in the anthology Unang Putok (+ at Batch).
Leng loves watching TV series and movies, listening to indie folk music, collecting washi tapes, and following the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
