Though I’ve read, researched, written about – and yes, even lived – this history and culture for 30+ years, the fact that I, an American, born and raised in the second half of the 20th century, have the audacity to publish books about it, boggles the mind (or at least my mind). But I do it because I need to – because if I don’t, who will?
I’m making steady progress with my new book about Shinsengumi. I’ll post updates periodically.
A heartfelt thanks to all my readers!
