Anne Ishii


I went to UC Santa Cruz and studied enough French to last me a lifetime before moving to France for a couple years and deciding I didn’t want to spend a lifetime there.

I went to Columbia University to get a Masters Degree in Japanese Literature before deciding I wanted to sell Japanese literature, not write about it.

I volunteer my time at SAGE and love the elderly. I sit on the Board of Directors of the Asian American Writers Workshop where I sometimes contribute to their programming and website.

I suck at but persist in doing comedy open mics and playing piano, keyboard and drums, making dumb songs.

I’m very happily married to a dude and have a cat but I won’t be offended if you insist on mentioning your girlfriend every time we chat.

I’m on Twitter, Instagram. I have a blog.
