Short Artist Statement: Regina primarily writes in the horror genre and loves the challenge of finding new ways to scare the modern audience. Her writing explores that dichotomy between not only Western and Asian cultures but also the tangible and spiritual worlds, and how Asian Americans exist within them. Through layers of suspense and terror, she tackles these experiences that many Asian Americans share and strives to re-envision the horror landscape through this lens.
