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!

    • I just discovered that your superpower is to magically conjure up the ghosts of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, because after reading this comment, today I encountered THOSE VERY SAME NINJA TURTLES posing with tourists in front of the Kiddyland store in Harajuku. (Only, by now wouldn’t they sort of be verging on the Middle-Aged Mutant Ninja Turtles?)
