Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I began my writing career as a columnist for a major Japanese newspaper. Through considerable production work for film, TV, and other media in Los Angeles, and also working as a travel journalist, I gained extensive insight into storytelling, which inspired me to write books and screenplays.
I’ve written more than a dozen feature screenplays and three books thus far.
