Raquel: I'm so delighted to have you stop by, J.C. Can you tell us what your Tour de Force is all about?
J.C.: Stories for Sendai is a collection of 20 uplifting and inspirational short stories that all share a common theme: they encompass hope and the strength of the human spirit. All proceeds from sales of the anthology will go towards helping victims of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
Raquel: What a worthy endeavor. You really put your talent to work for the good of others. Can you tell us how long you've been writing?
I’ve been writing all my life, but have only decided to seriously pursue writing as a career last August. To allow more time each day for writing, I had a change in career. As a kung fu instructor, I LOVE writing action scenes, and I believe my knowledge of the martial arts come in very handy when writing fight scenes.
