Aloha friend, pehea ‘oe (how are you)?
E komo mai (welcome, come in) my name is Becky Banks. As you might have guessed, I’m a child of Hawai’i and descended from four generations of family that were born, raised or native to there. In the early 2000’s I attend college in Oregon and it was there that I was encouraged to pursue writing as a career by my fiction writing professor.
The part of the islands that I grew up in is known as Peahi on the island of Maui. It’s a rain forest and was the home of my grandparent’s ranch. I spent my days, arms wide, running through grassy fields with the peaks of Haleakala and the azure plains of the Pacific as the backdrops to my escapades. This shows in my work. My books are rich with imagery and romantic details that imprinted on me as a child in paradise.

I’ve been lucky to receive accolades from Amazon to book bloggers, most of which stem from my first book, The Legend of Lady MacLaoch.
I currently live in the second weirdest (and proud of it!) city in the nation, Portland, Oregon and split my time with my family home on Maui.
Take a peek at some past interviews with me:

Another place to find me is at my personal blog down the street at, Go Indie or Go Home.
Mahalo for stopping by, friend!
