She is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to promote her first book, “My Japanese Husband Thinks I’m Crazy: The Comic Book” is the autobiographical misadventures of a native Texan freelancer and her Japanese “salaryman” husband: in comic book form.


“My Japanese Husband Thinks I’m Crazy: The Comic Book” is a comic book… but it is more than just a comic book. It is an entertaining look into the life of an interracial and intercultural marriage trying to create a life in Japan.
