As 2022 ends, I look back with aloha and gratitude to the many people who have made such a difference in my writing life.
Mahalo nunui to the wonderful writers and artists who shared their manaʻo here on my blog this past year — their hopes and accomplishments continue to inspire us.
To the many wonderful writing friends I’ve made, especially at Writing Barn’s CtC community, my aloha always. You are a source of encouragement and wisdom I know I can count on.
Thank you, Brandi Uyemura, for letting me bounce ideas off of you and for sharing your wonderful writing with me.
Mahalo to my agent, James MacGowan, for believing in me. Team James all the way!
I look forward to sharing good news in the coming year about my debut picture book as well as a new website focusing on Native Hawaiian and Polynesian creators! Aloha from my ʻohana to yours! See you in 2023!
