A child of two cultures, this hapa haole Hawaiian girl is currently landlocked in the Midwest. After exploring the world for a chunk of years, she hunkered down in Minnesota and now fills her days with family, fiction, and the occasional snowstorm. With a house full of lovable toddlers, a three-legged cat, and one handsome Dutchman, she prowls the keyboard late at night while the minions sleep. Coffee? Nah, she prefers tea with a generous spoonful of sarcasm.

I've got a house full of kids, a ridiculously loud refrigerator, and a cat that insists on attention the moment I sit at the computer. My husband knows to keep it down when I'm trying to write. The man has keen survival instincts.
In my opinion, writer's block is something that can only be resolved by more writing. Inspiration doesn't always (ever?) come on demand. Expect pain because it's a matter of sitting down and pulling the story out one word at a time. Pile enough of them together, and hey, you've got a first draft you can pound into shape.(less)
Anela Deen It's got to be the rolling movie I have in my head. Yeah, that sounds mildly psychotic but I'm comfortable living with that possibility.…moreIt's got to be the rolling movie I have in my head. Yeah, that sounds mildly psychotic but I'm comfortable living with that possibility.(less)

Sneak Peek! Read Chapter One of IN THE JADED GROVE

Simith of Drifthorn is tired of war. After years of conflict between the Thistle court and the troll kingdom, even a pixie knight known for his bloodlust longs for peace.

“We aren't defined only by our failures and sorrows. I'm starting to believe we're an assortment. A few big events, but countless smaller details. Little joys that carry us through the days, even when those days are bad.”
Anela Deen, Beneath Cruel Fathoms

“He wondered what his best friend would think of that, to have gained a friendship even after death.”
Anela Deen, In the Jaded Grove

“Don't thank me yet. Your human looks decidedly stale. Have you given her any water?"

He frowned. "Why would I do that when there's water all around?"

"She can't ingest seawater, crustacean-head. Don't you know anything about landwellers?”
Anela Deen, Beneath Cruel Fathoms
