Leilani Akamai


My Middle Grade (ages 8-12) series is entitled The Hawaiian Island Detective Club. Book one is Pineapples in Peril. Books two and three are Menehunes Missing and Ukuleles Undercover.

These books Have Been Contracted!!! I will let you know when they will be published and available to you, but in the meantime, it might be fun during this month to talk about my characters.

I want to share a little about my character’s names. You may wonder what they mean and how they’re pronounced, so I plan to address these questions.

Today I’m introducing my main character, Leilani Akamai. Leilani is thirteen years old and loves mysteries. She’s pretended to solve mysteries for a number of years, but now she and her friends are ready to solve something real, like the vandalism occurring in the pineapple fields near her home.

Leilani is pronounced: lay-LAH-nee
Meaning:  Heavenly Blossoms
Gender: Female

Akamai is pronounced:  ah-kah-MY
Meaning:  Smart, Intelligent, Wisdom
Gender: Female

Isn’t this fun?? Join me on Monday for another character!

Mahalo for visiting!
