In the land where “anything in a tortilla is a taco” and “anything on a crust is a pizza,” why am I not surprised that there’s a cafe playing fast and loose with the word “tart,” serving up what amounts to a dessert sandwich? Choose between a slab of blueberry cheesecake or a brownie with walnuts (both reclining on a bed of whipped cream and garnished with tan mystery chips) swadged between two slices of bread and grilled in a panini press. Enjoy.
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!
