Private Project

Kitsune Mask

When biracial, futuristic police officer Jay Yoshikawa went to Japan to pay her respects to her deceased grandparents, she didn’t intend to bring home the family’s secret and unleash it on the citizens of San Francisco. Now, this highly-trained cop must release her control to a yokai-fighting, nine-tailed fox entity to become Kitsune Mask and defeat the soul-sucking ice demon Yuki-Onna (Snow Woman) before she takes the lives of Jay’s best friend and her love interest.

Writer Biography

I'm the American half of our Japanese-American family. I spend about a month each summer at my in-laws’ house in rural Japan with my teen-aged children. So it will be no surprise that I’ve written about Japanese culture and raising bicultural kids for magazines, travel books, YA books, and, most recently, screenplays. I'm also known as The Obento Lady at local anime/manga/cosplay/Japanese pop culture events where I sell bento-making equipment, make over otaku kids' lunches, and teach people how to play with their food. Add all of the above to my long-standing love of stories with kick-ass heroines, and you get Jay Yoshikawa and KITSUNE MASK.

Writer Statement

I write stories for intelligent, adventurous, globally-minded teens (and the young at heart) who aren't afraid to love someone outside of their own ethnicity.
