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!

  1. I keep looking at cute cat stuff, even here, then have to remind myself that I have that I have the real deal x three here, all willing to be unpredictable and mess with my head. The only real advantage of the pillow version is predictability but what’s fun about that? Regular pillows do that too.
