Love is a story about soul mates, a story about destiny; one written by a man from the perspective of a man, which I find to be interesting.
Maybe it’s just me, but it always seemed to me that even though women are romantic by nature, it’s as if romance itself was created by men. It is men who crave for a love so perfect that there’s no room for doubt, it is men who are capable of going to extreme lengths in order to fight for their love. It is men who believe in their feelings until the very end.
Well written and thoroughly enjoyable, this novel tries to define the nature of love from the perspective of a man; the nature of change, that change that only happens once a man sees a better self in the eyes of the woman he loves.
Upon finishing my university studies I moved to the beautiful country of Japan only to bounce back and forth between the U.S and Japan. Finally receiving my Japanese citizenship in the spring of 2014. My life has been filled with many strong women which is one of the contributing factors in my protagonists tending to be women.
I am a lover of classical literature and hope to bring in a new style of classical literature in the current age of fast paced easy to read cookie cutter style novels that are being pushed out in mass across the world. Choosing to stick to my own style of writing rather than write for easy to sell books has made me a difficult writer to get into, yet it is the joy of writing as to why I do things the way I do. There is always the temptation to write easy to digest books that are made to sell over books that are written for an experience and few writers have mastered both. As I work to improve my craft I am inching my way ever closer to that perfect balance of books that will satisfy the modern reader and the reader who focuses more on content rather than face value to be released.
