Overview: I am an author, blogger, and comic artist. I like shopping, looking at funny pictures on the internet, my family, my husband’s family, backpacking, and writing my story on the internet for strangers to read. This blog is my pet project, started at the urge of my then-boyfriend (now husband) Ryosuke, when I was studying abroad in Tokyo.
#1. My Japanese Husband Thinks I’m Crazy: The Comic Book"My Japanese Husband Thinks I’m Crazy: The Comic Book" is the autobiographical misadventures of a native Texan freelancer and her Japanese "salaryman" husband: in comic book form. From earthquakes and crowded trains, to hilarious cultural faux pas, this comic explores the joys of living and working abroad, intercultural marriages, and trying to make a decent pot roast on Thanksgiving.

My Japanese Husband (still) Thinks I’m Crazy is the semi-autobiographical story of Grace, a native Texan, her hilarious husband Ryosuke, and her over-active imagination personified in a talking rabbit, Marvin. Their life is told through a series of comics depicting the joys and hardships of living abroad.
After all, just because something is different doesn’t mean that it’s wrong.
