Malia Maunakea

Malia Maunakea is a part-Hawaiian writer who grew up in the rainforest on the Big Island before moving to a valley on O'ahu in seventh grade. She relocated to the continent for college, and when she isn’t writing can be found roaming the Colorado Rocky Mountains with her husband, their two children, and a rescue mutt named Peggy. Malia's debut middle-grade novel Lei and the Fire Goddess (2023) is an Amazon Best Book of the Month, a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, and a Common Sense Media Selection. You can find Malia online at maliamaunakea.com and @MaliaMaunakea on Twitter.
