I was born in Japan and am living in England.
I finished studying Creative and Critical Writing in a postgraduate course with three distinctions at the University of Winchester in September, 2011.
I have published my stories in nineteen magazines both in the UK and the US. One of them, ‘Killing Me Softly’, is published at Gray Sparrow, which won an award for the Best New Literary Journal of the Year from the Council of Editors of Learned Journal. Another one, ‘A Fat Mermaid’, is published at First Edition, sold at W.H. Smith.
