I am a writer and gamer. For as long as I could remember, I have had a real passion for reading comic books and making people laugh. I loved these wild stories with pictures that would just bring me into my own world (often getting me into trouble at school and home) But I could never find the perfect blending of the Eastern style and Western Style books and comic books that I so craved. Enter the Hell's Gate Book Series and my collection of audiobooks . Most of my work embraces the two cultures, bringing them together in harmony. I was raised in both Chinese and Japanese culture by a Chinese Step-father. I would sit and listen as I would draw inspiration from his folklore stories and his equal love for Japanese culture. And so, with his memory in mind, I create my vision of a perfectly balanced universe of Eastern and Western cultures, philosophies, and folklore.
As one that has struggled with high functioning Autism her entire life, you can imagine what it's like to explain myself constantly. I once had a manager in the same sentence say, 'You have a mind like no other and your creativity and ability to think outside of the box is amazing. Now please, keep that to yourself.' I am often overworked and underpaid and finally decided to take the plunge and devote myself to my passions. I work 60+ hours a week and would love to devote all of my time to my craft instead to share with all of you.
Illustrating my worlds through film, audiobooks, and creating stories are my one true happy place. I don't know what meditation is, but I think I can understand it. When I create audio stories, draw, or write I'm lost to them for hours on end. And I want to share my creations with all of you. You can find examples of my other projects such as podcasts here. As demand for my time and writing has increased, my full-time job has turned into part-time pay as I have been taking more time to complete my projects. It's quickly depleting all of my earnings and savings. This is where all of you come in!
What I'm currently doing is not the most conventional approach─ I try to release pretty much all of my artistic content for free: the podcasts, comics, audiobooks on my site, wherever.
I like to do this because not everybody wants to buy it─ and that's OK! It's yours, it's everybody's─ take it, and you can share.
