Claire Youmans first went to Japan in 1992 and was immediately captivated.  After years of travel and study, she continues to be charmed and amazed by a fascinating history and a culture that's both endearingly quirky and entirely unique.

In 2014, she started Tales of the Meiji Era with The Toki-Girl and the Sparrow-Boy's unparalleled blend of historical fantasy and magical realism exploring the combination of history and folklore to share Youmans' love and fascination with a very different country and culture. 

Exciting adventures continue in this delightful fantastical yet historical world. Follow these here, at www.facebook.com/tokigirlandsparrowboy/ and on Twitter @tokigirlsparrow, and http://claireyoumansauthor.blogspot.com, where she shares poetry and her tales of living in modern Japan.
