About the Author

Renae Lucas-Hall is the author of Tokyo Tales: A Collection of Japanese Short Stories as well as Tokyo Hearts: A Japanese Love Story. Renae is an Australian-born British novelist and writer. She spent years studying French, Italian and Japanese because she loves languages and she always wanted to be an interpreter, a teacher or a writer. Renae later graduated from university with a degree in Japanese language and culture. She went on to live in Tokyo for two years, where she taught English. Renae has continued to work with the Japanese for many years. Ten years ago, Renae also completed an Advanced Diploma of Business. Over the past twenty years, Renae has enjoyed visiting Japan many times for work or as a tourist. She continues to love reading and writing anything and everything about Japan.

Yoshimi OHTANI’s illustrations feature on the book cover and throughout Tokyo Tales: A Collection of Japanese Short Stories by Renae Lucas-Hall. Yoshimi OHTANI is a renowned Japanese illustrator from Tokyo. OHTANI's creations combine a traditional mindset (iki) with a sense of modern Japanesque "passive demeanor" (wabi), an "elegant simplicity" (sabi), and a "classic taste" (kare). The results give fascinating characters that are a hybrid of Japanimation/manga-comics and design/artistic expression. Find out more about Yoshimi OHTANI at ARTas1.com/yoshimi_ohtani.
