About MR John B Ponce
John B. Ponce's love for creating first found its way through drawing comics on scrap paper at age twelve. At fourteen he could no longer draw as good as his imagination so he turned to writing. Math notebooks were filled to the last page with short stories about teenagers his age solving mysteries around neighbourhoods that looked exactly like the one he lived in. He has been working for his family business since 2003. He lives in Las Pinas City, Metro Manila, Philippines.
