Welcome, Reader! Do you want to read new, fresh, and unique novels? Do you want to be kept up on new releases and contest but not bombarded with newsletters? Then this is the place for you. My romance and historical fiction has the distinctness of Japan without a heavy, textbook instruction. Enjoy the relationships of my characters where the spice of the Orient flavors the story. While savoring the building relationship between a man and woman, you will be exposed to the culture and aura of Japan.
My goal in writing stories with these unique characters is to demonstrate that love knows no bounds or prejudice. (I do not make race a major conflict in my work, relying on other road blocks.)
Enter my monthly contest via my website, signing up for my newsletter. This chance to win a book requires nothing more!
As new books are released, or interesting events happen, I run special contests with great prizes.
So, by accepting this invitation to receive my newsletter, you will be alerted to the opportunity to join me and my exotic characters in a mysterious world.
Please join me and I thank you taking the time to read this.

Subject: Spring Training Starts and so does a great contest!
SPRING TRAINING BEGINS!
Major League Baseball gets ready for the 2008 season with the time honored ritual of spring training in Florida and Arizona. Rookies join seasoned veterans.
New team members join roster favorites. Among these is Masahide Kobayashi, a right handed pitcher signed by the Cleveland Indians.
Why am I excited? Because this imitates my first contemporary romance, THE WORDS OF THE PITCHER.
Yes! My hero, Kentaro Ikuta came to my fictional MLB Cleveland team as the first Japanese National signed to the majors in 30 years. Alas, unable to speak English he offends the press. To correct this communication problem, management hires Claire Ferris to speak for the pitcher.
In honor of Kobayashi - sanís signing, Iím having a fantastic contest!
