Fai was born and raised in Tacoma, WA. Every day she expected Mt. Rainier to explode. Finally, when she was 28, Mt. St. Helens did explode. She learned something that day. For all those years, she had worried about the wrong mountain.
But that didn’t stop her. No. Instead, she increased her level of vigilance to worry about as many things as possible. Still, it was the things she’d never thought of that happened. Her creative skills were put to the test.
And that’s when she started writing. The more she made up problems for her characters, the less anxiety she suffered about her own life. Soon she realized just how much fun that was. She began writing seriously and found she couldn’t stop.
She lives with her wife, Becky, in an old Victorian home in a small town north of Seattle. Moxie, a Chow-Chow/Newfoundland mix and Pepe, a Tuxedo cat, makes her laugh every day. Her writing studio is in a small attic room at the back of the house overlooking the garden and patio. She listens to the Muse whispering through the open window, and she writes.
