  • Jo is left-handed and would love to see a world where more people like her can have access to safer tools. Have you ever cut tomatoes with your left hand using a right-edged knife? Yeah.

  • She is a first-generation Filipino-American, born in the Philippines and moved to Hawai'i when she was 4.

  • Her favorite things to do that involve money are getting tattoos, dying her hair, and eating good food.

  • In her spare time (when she should be writing), she binges lots of shows as "research" for her writing. 🙄

  • Yes, she did draw comics in middle school—she finished Volume 1, actually. Now she dabbles in some type of artform here and there for muscle memory purposes.
