About my work

As a mixed-ethnicity writer of native Hawaiian and Japanese descent, I am interested in exploring native Hawaiian identity and how this identity unfolds in the lives, minds and bodies of women. My work leans into the liminal space of fantastical realism, horror, and science fiction to interrogate the treatment of fellow APIA women and the ways in which physical and emotional isolation take a toll on women’s psyche. Expect ghosts, menstruation, sex, and the Hawaiian landscape in all of its beauty and its horror.
