I am a writer searching for the right agent to represent my books for kids -- including novels SHINTO SECRET, set in Japan, and HERO IN TIME, set during the Great Boston Molasses Flood. My essays and travel articles have been published in the Boston Globe, LA Times, and Princeton Alumni Weekly. I am also a mother of three who loves speedskating, hang gliding, and skydiving.









Meet Author Jean Letai

Three things Keiko knew for sure. First, she was not crazy. Second, when she grew up she would have twins, and she would never tell anyone who was born first. Third, she’d seen her grandpa Jiiji on the night of his death, reaching out to her from halfway across the planet with his hand all puckered like a bird’s claw.
