Writer's Philosophy

All writers have their obstacles to overcome.  Our ambition is sometimes too great, our self esteem sometimes too slow, our effort often so much less than the work required to manifest ideas into stories and create paper bound versions of those stories for others to read.  Ideas are easy, imagining is fun, manifesting is torturous work.

June 2018

Updating this website,, and the new Bair Ink site is on my to-do list along with continuing the publication of my late mother's MyKu books. So far 6 of 12 are available with MyKu Nana (volume #7) set to release early July.

Sadly, Tanya Richey succumbed to cancer earlier this month.  Her creative spirit could no longer be contained by a mere mortal body.  

My work as a writer also continues as I travel to the Dublin Writers' Convention to evolve my craft and meet wonderful new people.


Wow!  Time slips by when life happens... since April 2015 I've moved from Japan to Germany and abruptly returned to the United States to support my mother while she battles an aggressive cancer.  I continue to build my portfolio writing daily even if only for thirty minutes.  My work on The Path to Yes and the Hundred Hour Approach continues and my fiction writing marches forward one paragraph at a time.  

APRIL 2015:
Cherry blossoms blooming in Japan and around the world have inspired a new short story:  Attack of the Killer Cherry Blossoms.

deas are easy, imagining is fun, but manifesting is torturous work!

The 100 Hour Approach is moving steadily towards publication and my tour of the 33 Kanto Temples continues to inspire so please "
