About the Author

Keiko Takemiya was born in 1950 in Tokushima, Japan. She made her manga debut in 1968 with The Sin of the Apple. As part of one of the first seminal women manga collectives (the Magnificent 49ers), Takemiya founded what is now known as yaoi--the explosively popular gay homoerotic sugbenre of shojo manga.

Takemiyas thematic diversity ranges beyond yaoi, however, from Sci-Fi to music appreciation and, in 1980, she won the 25th annual Shogakkan Manga Awa for To Terra... (published in the US by Vertical). Currently, she is a professor of Manga Arts at Kyoto Seika University's Art Department.
