John Paul Catton: An Overview
At the mid-point of 2015, and with the first draft of “Voice of the Jewel” finished and clocking in at just under 100,000 words, I thought it was time for a look at where we’re at.
The Sword, Mirror, Jewel series
A YA Urban Fantasy trilogy based on the legends of the Sanshu no Jingi – the Three Imperial Treasures of ancient Japanese mythology. An interdimensional portal has opened beneath Tokyo … the war between different races of Yokai, creatures from Japanese legends and folklore, is about to erupt onto the streets of the metropolis … and Reiko Bergman, Japanese-American teenager and history buff, is caught right in the middle.
