HI! I’M ZIELFA. I WARMLY WELCOME YOU TO MY WEBSITE AND WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO INTRODUCE MYSELF.

Through this website I would like to get in touch with you by informing you of my publications. I am very happy to tell you of my two published novels to date – Rosa (2013) and What Brought You to England? (2014). These two books are about self-fulfillment and the lives of Filipino immigrants in England. These also serve as introductions to the Philippines, its culture and its people.  I have other writing projects which are in various states of conception and completion and which I would like to advise you about from time to time. My future plan is to include a page so that you can tell me about your thoughts and views on the issues I have raised in my books. A lively discussion would be great!

I feel fortunate and joyful that I am able to do what I have always wanted to do, even though it took my retirement from being a lecturer and practitioner in occupational therapy to allow me to develop my writing ambitions.

‘You have in many subtle and not so subtle ways spelled out the life journeys of so many many Filipinos.’ … Rosa

                            ‘This is a very fascinating and enjoyable read. You have a gift for drawing your reader in and making them want to read on.’…What brought you to England?
