Ailia has lived in Louisiana and O’ahu and New England, yet tends to find herself anywhere there’s karaoke. Although her first published story is what appears in Amok, in 2011 her Kafkaesque take on a classic campfire snack earned Honorable Mention in an edible literature contest. You can probably guess the recipe behind the Meta-S’mores-Phosis, or just hit her up on Facebook.
Ailia’s story “Bumbye! Said the Candelarios” is included in Amok: An Anthology of Asia-Pacific Speculative Fiction.
