KuroKoneko Kamen

Biography

Konichiwa! Hi! I'm KuroKoneko Kamen, that means 'Black Kitten Mask' in Japanese. Yep, you guessed it, I'm an otaku and fan of anything Japanese from folktales to modern anime and manga. This is why I write Japan-themed novels. Someone once told me: 'Write what you know'. And for some reason I knew all this random stuff about Japanese culture like: yokai (Japanese demons), folktale stories, anime, manga etc. This is why I wanted to write fun, young adult novels that were set in Japan.

Recently inspired by my surroundings while living in the caribbean I wrote a fun action, adventure romance, pirate-themed story called "Sanky Panky Pirate".

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
One of the children's books I remember reading is "Where the Wild Things Are". Books have always been a fun escape from reality for me. And even as a child when my Mother exposed me to picture books...I started to doodle my own little picture books. My very first book was about a small green turtle and its adventures. After that I wrote a few fantasy stories and in high school I wrote a lot of fanfiction. Then, came my obsession with anime and I wrote several novels that have an "anime" feel. Recently, I've gotten into reading paranormal romance and have started writing books in this genre as well.
How do you approach cover design?
I enjoy drawing...but my skills just aren't where I want them to be to do my own cover arts. I usually have this "vision" in my head for the cover, sketch it out and then search deviantart for the artist that I think will be able to bring my vision to life. I have used several different artists from deviantart and have been very pleased with the results. It's always fun to see your original characters brought to life.

Sanky Panky Pirate Rap
Hello this is author KuroKoneko Kamen, as promised I have made a music video featuring the rap song that is at the end of my pirate-themed novel Sanky Panky Pirate. I'm not a very good singer/rapper but I just wanted to let you all know how I envisioned the song being sung. I changed the lyrics of the song around a bit since it's supposed to be Sanky Panky Pirate Machete singing the song and not a pirate cat-girl lol!
