Filipina author inspires readers through adversities and hardships she faced throughout career 


A Dubai-based Filipina writer who has 20 years of experience in the field of media has very recently launched her second book at the Sharjah International Book Fair, a cultural extravaganza that celebrates the world’s culture by hosting distinguished authors, and intellectuals, among others. 

Florence Go aims to inspire many through the adversities and hardships she has faced throughout her career. 

With her latest book ‘A-Z TIPS How to Heal a Broken Heart,’ she wants to guide her reader on moving forward, making peace a priority, and leading a new life. 

“Unlike in TV shows and movies, there is no fast-forwarding in real life when you are going through pain and romantic heartbreak. But there are ways how you can get over it. Yes, it’s not easy. Indeed it is a lot of work, but once you overcome it, you learn, you grow, and you become stronger. It takes a lot of courage but it’s worth it. The next morning when you wake up, you will just laugh it off as if nothing happened. Just follow the A-Z Tips How to Heal a Broken Heart and you will be okay,” she told The Global Filipino Magazine. 

Florence has worked on several TV channels in the Philippines, India, and UAE. She worked back home for eight years in the TV industry as a talent, news writer, and segment producer; while in India, she worked for a project in a cable network as a producer and editing manager; and 12 years in Dubai. 

Her first book ‘12 Years Beyond Love and Despair’ is a collection of poetry and prose that takes readers through a journey of self-discovery, of intrinsically accepting the imperfections of life, of coming to terms with its bitter surprises, and of the essence of forgiveness in moving forward. 

“This book is about finding the courage to be selfless and the audacity to hope and dream again,” she explained further. 

Despite having published two books, Florence said writing could sometimes be challenging. 

“I think most authors’ main challenge is writer’s block, there was a time that I felt it was difficult to write but I always said I have to deal with it and find a solution especially when I was eager to complete it, by taking rest and stop writing for a moment, more reading and think of inspiration and believing that I have a goal to achieve,” she said. 

“Second, the competition is tight these days. But instead of thinking that I won’t sell my book, I embrace it and be positive and lastly, perfectionism, use of words, ideas, and mostly during the final design of the book cover which was tough. And again, having a positive outlook helped me overcome this fear. And wait for the readers’ review and feedback and that’s the only time I can refurbish my work again,” she added.
