Sumiko is a local Bay Area author who lives in Oakland. She writes horror and science-fiction. She's an African American woman who wrote the definitive researcher's guide on the subject of black women in horror, but there is a lot of cross-over to science-fiction with authors like Octavia Butler. She speaks on a lot of diversity panels at sci-fi, horror and fantasy conventions. She also speaks about writing the other, and wrote an award winning academic paper for the 2017 Berkeley Community College's "Reframing the Other" contest (grand prize). She won the local 2016 San Mateo Fair award for her sci-fi dystopian tale Agrippa (2nd place).  She was the 2016 Bram Stoker Scholarship from Hell winner. She has presented several Mary Shelley 200 Anniversary of Frankenstein panels this year, focusing on her role in modern sci-fi and horror and the intersection of the two genres.
