Based in Honolulu, Kay Hadashi is a lifelong avid reader and has had an extensive career as a surgical nurse. Story plots for her novels come from events at the hospital and straight out of the news media. She knows that the best stories are the ones that come to life through the characters. Using elements from her friends, family, and herself, the characters she creates have qualities and failings that readers enjoy.
