I’m B-a-a-a-c-k!

Me holding the first copy of Nightshade in my hot little hands, and yes, that's a Princess Style kimono I'm wearing because that's how we spell SLACKING OFF FROM WORK around here

Huge apologies for being seriously AWOL lately – all three of my books just came out in paperback for the first time, and the beavering away has been pretty nonstop for the past two months (interrupted only by bouts of procrastination (see above) and happy Snoopy dances LOOKY LOOKY NEW PRETTY COVERS! (see below)

Inserts shameless plug: If you know anyone who reads mysteries but doesn’t do that ebook thing, I will be your friend forever if you spread the word that these lovelies are out in paperback now

Also, (additional LOOK SQUIRREL alert): book trailers are out for all three. I just know you’ll thank me for wasting more minutes of your life that you’ll never get back.

This is the one that takes place in a Japanese host club (you know you want to go to one, GIVE IN NOW) so if you haven’t read it, here’s more

If you’ve ever wanted to peek backstage at the weird world of Japanese pop idols (hey, when will you ever get another chance to do that?) you can read more here

This all happened like a proverbial typhoon (except without the sweltering temps and bucketing rain) because my mystery series moved to a new publisher (I used to be with biggie Penguin, now with boutiquelicious Bancroft & Greene). And that means you need to catch up with the doings of Yumi and Kenji because…

...the next one is coming out in December!

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!
