Currently I am writing the manga series Ronin Yoshino. It took 8 years of research on Japanese Culture- the language, folklore, customs, history & clothing. All of which has taken an incredible amount of work, which is fun since I am still learning! The characters are all based on historical figures & personalities inspired from people I know.

    Thanks for your compliments. =)

    Yeah, I still have quite a few InuYasha Carddass cards, mostly from sets 1-3 but I have new ones. There called calendar cards & gallery foils from a new set. I stoped selling on eBay for a while cause it’s been slow.

    After I finish writing chapter 8, I’m going to publish Ronin Yoshino into a Tankoban (graphic novel book, like the ones VIZ sells). I’m going to be opening an online shop, haven’t decided on the domain name yet though.
