I lived in Japan about 12 years ago for about 7 years but now I'm back in Oz with a family and a job. I study law part-time and earn a crust teaching ESL. Writing is a hobby and way of coming to terms with my time in Japan and the transition back to life in Australia. I am pretty much done writing about Japan although modern developments such as the nuclear issue may trigger some more writing down the track. In the near future, I hope to publish a new novel I am working on as it nears completion. It's a novel about a band and that's all I want to say at this stage.
