About the Author:

Born on a crest of sixties optimism, JL Morin grew up in inner-city Detroit. She proffered moral support while her parents sacrificed all to a failed system. Wondering what the Japanese were doing right, she decamped to Tokyo as an exchange student at sixteen, and then again for her junior year abroad.

J. L. Morin is the author of the award-winning Japan novel SAZZAE (Gold medal winner of the 2010 eLit Book Award, 2010 winner of a Living Now Book Award), started as a creative thesis at Harvard, followed by the novels: USA Best Book Awards finalist TRAVELLING LIGHT, on sex slavery; and TRADING DREAMS, a humorous novel that unmasks hypocrisy in the banking industry and tosses misogyny onto the horns of the Wall Street bull, that became 'Occupy's first bestselling novel'; NATURE'S CONFESSION, First Place winner of the Dante Rossetti Awards. Her writing has appeared in THE HARVARD ADVOCATE, HARVARD YISEI, THE DETROIT NEWS, AGENCE FRANCE PRESSE, CYPRUS WEEKLY, LIVONIA OBSERVER ECCENTRIC NEWSPAPERS, and THE HARVARD CRIMSON. She is Adjunct faculty at Boston University.
