I lived in Japan about 12 years ago for about 7 years but now I'm back in Oz with a family and a job. I study law part-time and earn a crust teaching ESL. Writing is a hobby and way of coming to terms with my time in Japan and the transition back to life in Australia. I am pretty much done writing about Japan although modern developments such as the nuclear issue may trigger some more writing down the track. In the near future, I hope to publish a new novel I am working on as it nears completion. It's a novel about a band and that's all I want to say at this stage.

Keitai Friends is an interesting narrative where the author uses clear and concise language to give the reader an insight into life in Japan as an English speaking visitor. Josh is happy that he is readily accepted into the culture of Japan and enjoys many new friendships in and out of the drug scene until a flash of indecision and uncertainty changes his life forever. The next instalment can’t come soon enough.
