Most everybody here in the Philippines knows that September is quite the busy month for bibliophiles. Because it’s the month when the Manila International Book Fair happens, September is the month where most of the local publishers bring out the big guns. It’s also the month where National Book Store brings a lot of foreign authors over.
One of the two authors that National Book Store brought to the country last month was Canada-based Filipino author Jennifer Hillier. The author of “Creep” and “Freak” was here for almost a month, squeezing in a vacation in between media interviews and a signing at the Manila International Book Fair with fellow Filipino author Alex Gilvarry.
Thanks to National Book Store, I got to spend a bit of time with Jennifer and ask her about making male readers uncomfortable, her writing playlists, and why you can’t have too much sex in a thriller.
