Editorial in Sunday Star-Advertiser

As a teacher, I completely understand parent frustrations and concerns as we head into the new school year. Even in a blended environment, many households with full-time working guardians are struggling to come up a solution for childcare that allows them to keep working and stay sane. Private teacher groups and educator planning meetings discuss this daily, as well as many many other incredibly difficult questions we face this year.

New Article on Waikiki

Here & Beyond recently published an article I wrote on Waikiki — then and now. I hope to publish more articles about authentic Hawaii to make a dent in the overwhelming amount of cultural whitewashing that represents the vast majority of media on my state.

The Instant Circus

The Instant Circus tracks 24 hours in the life of a disaffected 20-something nine-to-fiver, typical in her contemporary ennui and narcissistic self-loathing. Leaving work one day she is entranced by and trails a 13-year-old nymphette into the Red Light district. Over the course of the neon-lit night she creates and embodies a new identity, meets vultures and lost souls, and becomes a prostitute.

Now available through Amazon Kindle HERE.
