Overview

On a routine exercise, seven fighter jets disappear over the Pacific. Weather reports are fine at the time and no one has any real idea of what happened except Eileen and Wulfstein.
Eileen, an investigative reporter for the Raging Planet, has an inkling that the seven jets were following the sacred path of a suicide mission as it has taken a revival in Japan. She baffles over whether the Japanese are going back to the very roots of their culture, the seppuku, to seek answers.
Given this ambiguity, Eileen goes to investigate the country’s true nature. Has Japan’s cultural psyche anything to do with their fate? Are the seven pilots following intuitive tradition?
But when Eileen interviews Wulfstein at MIT, the reclusive Professor makes known to her he has been investigating the strange movement of a bizarre bloop sound during the time of the disappearance. Ridiculed by his colleagues and the laughing stock of the scientific community, he will do whatever it takes to silence his critics. However, the search for answers not only proves costly; it brings him face to face with something that crawls right out of ancient mythology into our twenty-first century.
Are the two incidents related?
Just as Yin complements Yang, Eileen complements Wulfstein in their journeys in rediscovering the mystifying secrets of Japan.

Meet the Author

Just an obscure writer.

For years I have been puzzled by an observation, or a question. That question is, of all countries why only Japan has amassed a seppuku culture? Why only the Japanese have taken the trouble indulging such agonizing deaths with so much intensity, splendor and artistry?

The more I mull over it, the more it fascinates me. Japan maybe a necklace of islets, but Japan is also a necklace of calderas. As other plot points came into mind, I found that I needed to become a fiction writer, seeking out understanding as novelist John Gardner once said, ‘Fiction seeks out truth.’

In the process, I found novel writing excites me as it provides the necessary degree of freedom to allow a few other ideas to be explored. These other ideas—bloop, dreams, leviathan, TWA Flight 800—all seem unconnected but I wanted to thread them in this fictitious story, far beyond what’s possible in non-fiction writing.

The settings of Boston and Tokyo in Over Mount Fuji enhance a global theme and serve as a reflection of my diverse backgrounds. And the subplot incorporates a cross-cultural romance in a catastrophic setting, with a somber and reflective ending.

Now my novel readily available through Amazon, Barnes&Noble and an ebook through Smashword. Feel free to download the excerpt on the free online page at this site and check on Over Mount Fuji as the story progresses.

    GREAT READ! Especially for those who study volcanoes, earthquakes and cryptozoology and the sciences behind them!

    The author did a great job keeping my interest in every page. The characters were very relatable and deveolped well. My only advice would be to have this edited by someone with an excellent working knowledge of the english language. (both past and present tense words are used in the same sentence, this could be a simple language interpretation problem).
