Born and raised in Japan, I love sushi! I also enjoyed walks to the stationer's store to purchase notebooks, scented erasers and pencils when I was in elementary school. With each purchase, I was sure I was going to write a bestseller!Now I write, blog, and enjoy crafting fun characters in Durham, NC. My first five novels are set in some part of my state. Rain Song (Christy Finalist 2009) takes place in the little town of Mount Olive, home to Mount Olive Pickles and strong family ties. How Sweet It Is, also a Christy Finalist in 2010, takes places in the Smoky Mountains. Hatteras Girl made her debut October 2010. Of course, it is set in the lovely Outer Banks. A Wedding Invitation, has flashbacks of settings in a refugee camp in the Philippines and also has scenes in Winston-Salem, NC. It arrived in October 2011. For me, this novel represents the need we all have to belong and be accepted, just like my Amerasian character feels. Still Life in Shadows, my fifth novel, takes place in a small mountain town I created called Twin Branches. This is also a story of belonging as Gideon Miller helps dissatisfied Amish youth relocate and find their places in modern society. Under the Silk Hibiscus is my first historical novel, set in a Japanese-American internment camp, during WWII.In addition to speaking at conferences and retreats across the country, I teach online grief-writing classes---Writing the Heartache---and design and sell remembrance cards. Since my four-year-old son Daniel's death in 1997, I've written articles on coping with grief. Many of these can be read at the Open to Hope website at http://www.opentohope.com.

Very nice - a bit different to her previous books, but I liked it better.Written in first person, present tense, which I know annoys some people but I don't mind it.One grouch: it's Royal Doulton, not Royal Dalton. I don't care what the spell check says. http://www.royal-doulton.com/

I was happy when I saw the book in the mailbox the other day. I have heard great things about it and was anxious to give it a go. Samantha's invited to her friend's wedding. As she is getting anxious to go she calls one of her friends to meet up with her. The day of the wedding she doesn't see anyon...

I really enjoyed this book which I consider to be a 'Southern Lit' book (for all my fellow Southern Lit lovers). With a cast of eccentric characters and light hearted humor, this book is a real treat. I am looking forward to reading more by this author.
