October 2020


Raised just outside of St. John’s, Newfoundland, Loren grew up hoping to become the next Gordon Korman. She wasn’t particularly funny, which quickly became a serious problem. Then she dreamed of being an exchange student in Japan and using her newfound fluency to consume comic books by the boatload. That plan didn’t work out, either.

Instead, she went off to teach English in Osaka, and has been writing about Japan ever since.

She has two published novels set in Japan, Meet You By Hachiko, and a same-universe not-quite-sequel, Edokko. Both titles are part of the Sakura+Maple series banner and published by HachiPress.

It's not my very next project, but I do have a rough outline worked up for it!
Unlike the first two, which were both written some years ago, Book 3 will be starting from zero.

I may opt to treat it as a serial (posting new chapters as they are written) and then compile into novel format when the story reaches its conclusion - haven't quite decided. I have a few ideas rolling around for how to handle it! (less)

My favourite thing to write is a story rooted in a real place. I love getting the details just so, and hoping the reader can imagine themselves in that place. It's important, I think, to also capture those smaller details for readers who are still years away, so that they can be appropriately immersed in the time period/place of the story, even after the world keeps changing.

When I was quite young, I read a series of books set in Toronto in the 1930s ( That Scatterbrain Booky ) and it greatly influenced this quirk of my writing style. I want to write stories with locations as vibrantly presented as Booky's Toronto was. (less)
