Watch for my book – Rise

– Coming Summer 2020 –

An urban fantasy about redemption set in small town Japan.

The odds are stacked against Umeji Tatsuya as he restarts his life.
Will he dare to protect the person who hates him?

Umeji moves from Tokyo, with its bustling, vibrant cityscape, to the charming, slower-paced countryside of Nonogawa, north of Okayama City. Being a former yakuza (a mobster), he knows well that his past can’t stay buried forever.

Once yakuza, always yakuza.

The tattoos mark you for life.

Using her influence as the town’s beloved dowager, Nakamura Hisako tries to oust Umeji because she suspects his mob association. Yakuza have no place in her town. When Umeji rescues Nakamura and is willing to keep her secret at cost to himself, a bond forms between them.  Neither can predict how it will change their lives.

As the mundane and Spirit Realm intermix, we’ll find timelines do too. Centuries-old rivalries carry over into modern-day and past actions carry heavy significance into the present.
