clay-yumi_medium.jpg

Clay Boutwell and his wife Yumi are the authors of several top ten books on learning Japanese, including: Hiragana, the Basics of Japanese, and Hikoichi, the first in their popular Japanese Reader Collection series.

They currently have nearly two dozen Japanese language related titles and are slowly adding more readers and study guides. As an added bonus, every book includes free downloadable MP3s of every Japanese word and sentence in the books.

But Clay has always dreamed of being a… paperback writer!

Paperback WriterDear Sir or Madam, will you read my book?

And one day after listening to that LP, he began what would become Tanaka and the Yakuza’s Daughter—blending his love for Japanese culture and Brad Thor (er, love for the man’s books, that is).

His fiction includes thrillers (the Tanaka Series), Sherlock Holmes-esque mysteries (Two Tocks before Midnight, The Penitent Thief, etc), and, yes, superheroes! (The Temporal Series)
