Miki has been writing since she first touched the pointy end of a fat pencil to paper and realized stories came out. But then the pressures of making a living diverted her into the IT realm, where she found a knack for brainwashing computers to do her bidding (they called it “programming”).
Meanwhile, the words kept coming, keeping her up late nights scribbling endlessly about strange characters trying to make it in a “normal” world, or “normal” characters trying to make it in an odd one. Miki is still trying to figure out which of those she is. When she finally realized how much she still loved the writing part of life, she took a long break from her tech career to find out where that would take her.
She’s still working on finding that out.
Miki recently graduated with honors from Portland State University with degrees in Arts & Letters (writing in lots of genres) and Film (screenwriting focus). She also grokked a bunch of programming courses to keep her minion thing going, in the off chance she needs to save the world with that. Her writing genre-of-choice leans toward mainstream science fiction type stuff, with bits of other ingredients mixed in (typically sci-fi-romantic-comedy-action-adventure). She also enjoys writing memoir, poetry and totally
awful off-the-wall goofiness, when the mood strikes.
She lives in Vancouver, Washington, where it rains slightly more than absolutely necessary.
