Born and raised in the Philippines, Olivia Villa-Real wrote The Velvet Thorn—a novel that poignantly depicts the sensitivity and unique sentiment of the Asian culture. Musically impassioned, she is a concert artist, singer, pianist and composer.
With the publication of The Velvet Thorn, she has completed the first part of a trilogy. She is now currently working on the second part, The Stirrings of the Heart, which is a classical recording of her piano and vocal compositions, expected for release in 2013. The third in her trilogy is a collection of verse and prose poetry entitled Murm’rings of the Heart, and is expected to be published in late 2013. Currently, she also has a line of English and ethnic greeting cards published by her own company, Creative Spectrum Publishers.
She is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, the Screen Actors Guild, the American Guild of Variety Artists, The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, and the Music Teachers Association of California. She now lives in Southern California and maintains The Olivia Villa-Real School of Music in Eagle Rock, Los Angeles, California.
