About Sarah Ishii,
Founder and publishing consultant

Storycraft Gateway is founded by Sarah Kate Ishii, a seasoned writing and publishing professional.


"As a multi-book author, writing mentor, and publishing coordinator, I've navigated authors through all stages of the writing and publishing process, from planning their manuscripts to the life-changing moment they hold their printed books in their hands. Having experienced both the writer's confusion and the challenges my authors face, I wanted to create a consultancy where authors could receive comprehensive support in writing, editing, design, and publishing.

"In this industry, I've witnessed many authors dealing with the aftermath of publishing scams. I want to empower writers, helping them sidestep pitfalls and fostering a creative, fulfilling, and exciting publishing journey. Because creating a book is meant to be one of the most incredible milestones of a creator's life."
