2019 WATTYS WINNER - ROMANCE CATEGORY 
*I can't believe this! This is just amazing - so humbled and excited to see my baby Platinum Nights getting this incredible recognition from the Wattpad community. THANK YOU!*

An avid reader of most -- if not all -- genres, I have been writing for nearly 25 years now, both fiction and non-fiction.

I love blending genres to create powerful characters, emotional plots and exciting stories that hopefully will stay a long time with my readers. Strong, courageous and resilient, my female protagonists embrace their desires while battling inner demons and dangerous foes.

I live in Japan with my family. The rich and beautiful traditions, the amazing nature and the long history of this country are a constant source of creative inspiration.

I published in 2019 my TEMPER saga, made of Deference, Dread and Deliverance (available on Amazon), and in 2020 I released book 4, VINDICTA, now also available on Amazon.

DEFERENCE won the following Wattpad awards in 2018-2019:
Wattpad Featured (June 2018)
