A Short Story Set In Tokyo
A chance encounter brings a hint of romance to a young woman’s journey through the streets of Tokyo. This semi-autobiographical short story explores questions of identity and connectedness in the digital age.
Note: All of the author’s proceeds from the sale of this story will be donated to the Red Cross for the relief effort in Japan.
To my readers:
This book is categorized as contemporary women’s fiction and is not a romance. Neither is it set in the Tang Dynasty. There are no swords or warlords or even a single fight scene, so be forewarned.
