Valiantly planting his Extra-Crispy banner among the fierce townsfolk of Fuchu, Colonel Samurai conquers new territory for his finger-lickin’ fiefdom!
Special thanks to my intrepid classmate Kiratipong Ongkasae for snagging this excellent shot at the Kuriyami Matsuri!
Read a novel set in Tokyo…
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
