The Author

Seneca Baring is a Filipino Folklorist and Children’s Author. She grew up in the Philippines, in a small village far from the city, where there not much books to read, no libraries to go explore and know what lies behind the realities her five senses could grasp. But that didn’t mean there were no stories to listen to. Fairy tales, legends, myths – she heard them all from people who or whose ancestors claimed themselves to experience these magical beings. True or not, these stories were so much enjoyed by the author since her childhood and until now, and she would like to share her most favorites: the Gnomedom Tales.
