About Yume (she/her)

I am a writer of speculative fiction represented by Mary C. Moore.

I am half-Japanese and half-American and grew up in a space between two cultures -- the same space where my stories reside.

I've been writing since I was little, because I was afraid of the dark. (I'm still afraid of the dark.)

My debut novel, The Deep Sky, is out now, and my second book, The Stardust Grail, is out June 11, 2024. Both are published by Flatiron Books (Macmillan).

I graduated from Stuyvesant High School and Princeton University and live in Brooklyn with two cats, Boondoggle and Filibuster.

Check out some of my published stories here.
