Those of you who know my full history know that I spent about twenty years working in and around the Japanese automotive industry.
I am definitely a Japanophile. The history, culture, and language of Japan have long fascinated me. Japan has never been my permanent place of residence, but I’ve traveled there more times than I can count.
I learned the Japanese language in the late 1980s/early 1990s. I spent some time working as a translator/interpreter. My Japanese is a little rusty nowadays, compared to what it was in 1995 or 2000, when I was doing simultaneous interpretations at business meetings. But I can still manage an adult-level text or a news broadcast in Japanese.
I’m working on a new fiction series, set in Japan in the early 1990s. It will feature young Gen X protagonists. (Generation X was young in the early 1990s.)
Like all my books, this series will be available on Amazon, in both Kindle and paperback. But I may experiment with some other forms of distribution as well. (I’ve been wanting to try audio-first releases, possibly serialized here on Edward Trimnell Books, for example.)
