Can one girl win a war?
Kano Murasaki, called Risuko (Squirrel) is a young, fatherless girl, more comfortable climbing trees than down on the ground. Yet she finds herself enmeshed in a game where the board is the whole nation of Japan, where the pieces are armies, moved by scheming lords, and a single girl couldn’t possible have the power to change the outcome.
Or could she?
(Teen historical adventure fiction)
I’m not afraid of heights, but I definitely have a healthy respect for depths. So I’m as surprised as anyone that I’ve written a book featuring a girl who loves to be as high up in the air as possible.
I am a writer, editor, and publisher living just north of the Golden Gate Bridge with my wife, Maura Vaughn and our daughters. And our cats.
Currently, I run my own small publishing company, Stillpoint Digital Press. Since 1999, I’ve overseen the publications program for Joseph Campbell Foundation. I have edited three posthumous volumes of Campbell’s unpublished writing and lectures and overseen editions of twelve additional titles, including the third edition of his seminal Hero with a Thousand Faces.
In June, 2016, I released Risuko, a teen historical adventure novel (whew! lots of qualifications on that!) set in Japan during the Civil War era, and I’m in the middle of writing Bright-Eyes, the second book in the series.
I’m a passionate reader of mysteries, fantasy, and whatever else I can get my hands on. I am a story addict.
And that’s me, at the moment. 😉
