About Yume (she/her)

I am a writer of speculative fiction represented by Mary C. Moore at Kimberley Cameron & Associates.

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, will be published in 2023 by Flatiron Books (Macmillan).

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