Andrew Jalbuena Pasaporte has always loved writing, especially action-adventure and mystery stories for children. As a kid, he grew up reading—and getting scared of—R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps series, making these books one of his major writing influences. Reading is his portal to other dimensions, where he has met a creature or two of his imagination. When he’s not busy battling aswangs in his head, Andrew travels and works as a podcast producer and a marketing wiz for a startup. “Gimo Jr. and The Aswang Clan,” is his first novel.
