Atlanta, Georgia, USA
I am a writer, a painter and for a time, a belly dancer. involved in Japanese and Middle Eastern study and writing. I love Japanese poetry and the translations of Persian poetry...marvel at how different they are. Currently, I am in an intense study of the 8th century Japanese document, the Man'yoshu. I have a lot of past interests, was a fencer and an apprentice falconer, but don't do that anymore. Hawking can be too intense...you have the responsibility of a nasty bird and they aren't loyal.
Just published two novels, "The Kimono" October, 2018, and "Bull's Blood" this June, 2019. I have 8 books published at Amazon.com, and Lulu.com.
