Hi, I’m Jonelle Patrick. I live in Tokyo and San Francisco.
Long ago, before there was Snapchat, I graduated from Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo. Most of the time I write mystery novels, but when I’m not writing about murder at the local shrine, I write for GaijinPot and Sorrywatch, and blog about the cultural oddities I see every day at Only In Japan. I also run a travel website, The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had, so friends who go to Tokyo can see all the stuff I love most.
I also belong to the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, Sisters In Crime, and an insane Japanese club called Nadeshiko-kai. At the moment, I’m working on the fourth book in the Only In Tokyo mystery series. (Hey, if you’re a mystery lover, you should try them!)
