Sara Fujimura

Sara Fujimura is the American half of her Japanese-American family. Every summer she spends about a month in Japan at her in-laws’ house with her now teenaged children. Sara loves cooking and eating Japanese food, so you can often find her working at Arizona anime cons as her alter ego, The Obento Lady. Because Sara started her writing career as a journalist, a lot of her fiction work is rooted in fact. Whether you are a Japanophile, a foodie, or looking for a hero of the Asian persuasion for your anime-loving teen, "TANABATA WISH" has got you covered.
