Nukata: A Novel

A Historical Romance
NaNoWriMo 2016 Winner

How does one keep one’s dignity in a new and confusing world? That is the question Princess Nukata must ask herself when she marries into the Imperial Family and exchanges her simple life in the countryside for the more complex royal court in the midst of Japan’s turbulent Asuka Period. It is a period when Japan is still figuring out its identity, and Nukata will be swept up in a tide of ambition, jealousy, and intrigue, with only her dignity and her poetry to keep her grounded. But whether she will come out intact, and with her romance safe, remains to be seen.

Elliot, a generation ship whose crew and passengers have mysteriously disappeared. But while they get on the case, the police just find them a nuisance, and the case is no easier for them to solve than for the police.

All is not well in Walden. But hopefully, one day, a savior will come…
