I am a Japanese Taiwanese American writer and reader based outside Chicago. I write about mythology and memory and culture and mind. With my sister, artist Cori Lin, I run ROKUROKUBI, an ongoing visual narrative project. More about me here.

My essays and stories appear or are forthcoming in publications like Catapult, Electric Literature, Library Journal, Passages North, PANK, and more. My work was recently featured in the anthology What God is Honored Here? (University of Minnesota Press, 2019). I received a Creative Artists’ Fellowship from the Japan-US Friendship Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts in 2016 and an inaugural Walter Dean Myers Award from We Need Diverse Books in 2015.
