What should I call you?
You can call me 'Ebi'! That's the nickname my grandma gave me when I was a baby. I used to hate it for a few years, but now I cherish it because it's full of love. If you feel absolutely uncomfortable with 'Ebi', or simply don't know how to pronounce it, you can also call me 'Rin'.

What do you write?
Anything and everything. Literature and copy. I think it's fun.
If you need a copywriter for your advertisements or social media campaigns, I can be your girl.
If you need humorous, light-hearted, and informational content (a rare combination) for your website, I can be your girl.
If you need a poem written to memorialize a loved one, or to express your tenderness, I can be your girl.
What have you written?
Copy. Short stories. Prose. A book. Free verse poems. Villanelles. Narrative essays. Journalistic reports. White papers. SEO-targeted content. Sonnets (though I'm not very good at those).
Why 'mischievous god'?
I've always had a tenuous relationship with God. For many years, it seemed like God was playing tricks on me; I was sure he was simply amusing himself by toying with my life. It truly felt like I was trapped in the hands of a mischievous God (more 'chaotic neutral' than 'lawful good').
I conceived the idea for the title on an ordinary, blustery walk home from school, and promised myself that I would use it -- no matter what -- as the title for my first book.
Why do you write?
Because language is our best way of turning dreams into truth. Because a single sentence can hold within it so much formidable, unstoppable power. Because I am in love with the ripple and nuance of words and cacophonous syllables. Because I, just like you, am trying very hard to make sense of this world we breathe in.
