About the Author

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.

i loved the start of the book. but after Mark meets the other men, the author seems to confuse mike for mark and vice versa. it got to be terribly confusing and a bit off-putting since mark (or mike?) who had known so little japanese that he had been lost for almost a full day suddenly meets these men and is showing off all his sudden japanese language skills, while just hours before he could barely order a take out order in japanese. confusing. i think the author needs to reread and edit the middle to ending and sort out the whole mike/mark/sudden knowledge of the japanese language magically occuring once he could show off to a group of guys.

I found this very entertaining. It was well written and at times made me cry with laughter. I also loved the author's use of japanese words throughout the book.
