I’m Maina, a local half-nocturnal night dweller hiding in some cavernous corner of Brooklyn. I primarily write short fiction and poems, and if I'm not creating monsters, I'm battling them in video games.


Growing up a nerdy kid who loved games, manga, anime and the like, I was inspired by characters who never gave up and underwent tremendous growth. Stories are meant to compel, kindle emotion, and be an experience! I never want to stop creating stories that explore the worlds within and without.

My work has appeared in Puddlefar, Viscera Anthology, Weathervane, The Well, Ape-X, Catan Stories: Legend of the Sea Robbers, and more.
