Ramon Loyola (1967-2018) was a writer, legal author and lawyer. His poems have been published in 'the tablet' and 'STU magazine', and have appeared online at emanilapoetry.com and narratorPRIDE.com. Ramon held a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Pharmacy from the University of the Philippines, a Master of Law and Legal Practice (now Juris Doctor) and a Master of Arts in Creative Writing, both from the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). When not painstakingly working on his novel, he could be found wandering the back streets of Newtown, where he lived in inner west Sydney, looking for quiet places in the middle of the night. His blog at http://www.ramonloyola.org holds the breath of his writing.
