I was born in Japan, raised in central California, and am now lucky enough to live in New York City. I've wanted to write for so long, and decided to celebrate my birthday by finally doing it! Anyone, everyone who wants to, DO IT. Write what you love, what makes you happy, otherwise what's the point? There's nothing like getting a tearful text from an advance copy beta reader asking, "Why?? Why did you do that to her?!" Being a substitute teacher for fifteen years gave me some good ideas for what today's younger readers would enjoy, and I hope you do :o)

We didn't know what we were going to do without them, so we decided I should write a fantasy wish fulfillment for us that would tick all the important boxes, you know, make all our dreams come true, with a perfect first kiss and all that good stuff. And my students had a list of qualities that they wanted the heroine to have, too, like she should look normal, and be smart, and be good at things, so I made her all that stuff, too. And things took off from there. It was only supposed to be one book, but I realized I had more story to tell, so I just kept going, and went on until I told all I had in me, I guess! I hope you like all of it :o)(less)

I like stories with a little angst, lots of feelings, and a happy ending, so that's what I write. And I'm glad you're learning lots of new words!(less)
