I was born in the northeast of England, but I have lived most of my life outside the UK. I basically grew up in Germany, and have lived in East Asia for the past 31 years—29 years in Japan and two years in China—where I have worked as a freelance copywriter and editor for a number of major Japanese companies. I’ve written hundreds of articles on Japan as well as two travel guides (one for Thomas Cook and one for Compass Maps) and a Japanese phrase guide (for Thomas Cook). I am also credited as the author of a book called Neo Shunga (Shunga is the term for Japanese erotic art of the Edo Period), but, in fact, I only wrote the introduction and the captions. The book consists mainly of woodblock prints. I recently published my first novel in English, Blinded by the Night (I have published one in Japanese), as an ebook. It is the first in a series featuring Akira Toyoda. I expect to finish the second novel in this series, provisionally titled Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, by the end of the year.
