About this author

I’ve lived all over the world, raised in a family with eleven brothers and sisters. I spent my early childhood in Hawaii and the rest of my growing-up years trying to figure out a way to get back there, with stops in South Korea, Michigan and Germany along the way. Before writing fiction, I tried my hand at many things, including war game simulation and youth development research. But I decided it was much more fun to work on stories than statistics.

These days, I still love Hawaii, but have found my home under the moody skies of the Pacific Northwest.

This book!

What a delicious page-turner, filled with jazz and characters to love (die) for. The prose is lush, laced with sharp witticisms in just the right mix. The game played by Love and Death, and the romance between Flora and Henry, drew me in an
