Author has written 14 stories for Haibane Renmei, Kino's Journey, and Christine.

Hello all.

Kino's Journey -- Dead Man's Curve was completed in February 2010, though your reviews and comments are of course always eagerly invited.

The sequel to this series, Old Haunts, is essentially complete as of February 2011, though both series are subject to additions. Because "Haunts" follows a different character, Gia, I've formatted it as a single entry. Again, I'm eager to read your feedback.

A third series, The Bird of Time, is in progress.

In real life I've built a career in Hollyweird, but not as a writer, I'm sad to say. Six feature screenplays currently languish on my hard-drive.

If you're just now reading my stories here, welcome. Kino's in for a mind-blowing trip that will change her forever. I don't think she'd want it any other way.

Flowers and Smoke
The Bird of Time part two: Wouldn't it be interesting to know how Kino's Journey... ends? Will she find a warm home and family, or will she perish in the cold? Will she travel on, until the years catch up with her? Will she reach the destination Hermes promised, or was she fated all along to go up in smoke?

The Bird of Time reviews
The Bird of Time part one: Kino thought back to the stories Master had given her to read - in one, a person had panicked and frozen to death. Another protagonist had died by infection. More by thirst, quicksand, bog, crocodile, abandonment or betrayal. Now, Kino knew, she was in one of those stories, and despite all her efforts and preparation, fate had found her weakness!

The adventures of Gia and her talking car, the sequel to Dead Man's Curve, and the horrid perversion of everything Kino's Journey ever stood for.

Leaf reviews
Old Home was the same, Guri was the same, yet everything seemed out of joint to Hikari. Some primal voice inside her whispered an alarm she couldn't ignore. What was wrong with this strange new young feather named Leaf?

Little Vehicle reviews
Dead Man's Curve part five: "You've dropped hints about being reforged and having other riders. Strange that I've never stopped to ask... where does a motorcycle learn to talk? Just what are you, Hermes?"

A Tale of a Pure Land: Song From the Nest reviews
Dead Man's Curve part two: Brigadoon, Germelshausen, Shangri-La... Kino the Traveler had heard the legends vagabonds tell around campfires. Hamlets that could appear without warning and vanish just as suddenly? Myths! Kino didn't believe in such nonsense

A Tale of the People reviews
Dead Man's Curve part three: Know my children, in the days of your fathers' grandfathers we fled from the warriors of Koth-Shem. Hither came Keynoe, a vagabond, a derelict, a traveler astride her chariot Eremizu, to lead the People to their new land.

A Green and Growing Land reviews
Dead Man's Curve part one: When short of cash, visit prosperous, thriving cities and find temporary work. It's not glamorous but it's necessary for a traveler's survival. So all Kino asked for was a rich town with no dark, scary secrets.
