Welcome

WORK TOWARDS YOUR DREAM, SHINE IN TOMORROW
        -   Koichi Kawato

Welcome to my site. I am a writer based in Long Beach, California.  I am the author of a novella based on Bram Stoker's Dracula, titled, Sword of the Undead.  I have also written a personal finance book, titled, $10 a Day Towards, $1,000,000, and recently published  a book, titled,  Toe Up to 10K, which is about my recovery from spinal cord injury. 

My interests are eclectic, so under the "My Interests" tab, topics will be separated.  I know writers are expected to specialize in a particular type or genre, but although there are genres and topics I prefer, I would rather not be limited.  Not to compare myself to acting greats, but James Cagney did not make only gangster flicks, nor did John Wayne make only Westerns, so why should authors do the same?

In June, 2012, I came down with meningitis, and as a result, temporarily loss the use of my legs.  I wasn't guaranteed to walk again, although doctors did think that I would walk well enough after two years.  I reached that point of "well enough"  in around a year, and although I do not walk as smoothly as I did when I became ill, the visual difference is nil.  My running speed has not yet returned, but I am confident that I will be able to run as well as I did before the illness.  I wrote a book about my recovery titled, Toe Up to 10K.  The book won a Gold Medal in the 2015 Readers' Favorite Book Awards in the category, non-fiction inspirational.

My first novella, Sword of the Undead, is currently out of print, in physical form. I re-titled it and will be re-issuing it in ebook format.  The new title of the book is Samurai Vampire, Book II: Sword of the Undead.  The price of the book will be $1.99, which is lower than the price for the current version. The tentative date for this release is September 1, 2016.

Rubio/Cruz ticket for GOP in 2016? 

This is copied and pasted from the blog I maintain on my author website.  I normally blog from here and then export to other sites, but when I blog from my author site, it doesn't  export to here, so...

Here is the blogpost:

Last weekend, I made several predictions about how the 2016 presidential campaign will play out.  I was waaaay wrong about Jeb Bush, which was my out of the world prediction - that he would be the GOP nominee.  But I do think he dropped out too soon. He should have waited until Super…Read more

A Rubio/Cruz ticket for GOP 2016? 

Last weekend, I made several predictions about how the 2016 presidential campaign will play out.  I was waaaay wrong about Jeb Bush, which was my out of the world prediction - that he would be the GOP nominee.  But I do think he dropped out too soon. He should have waited until Super Tuesday because the field is still crowded enough and enough delegates are still up for grabs for him to make an impact while not hurting Rubio enough. Despite their "feud," Rubio, I believe would be his answer to the question…Read more

Thoughts on How the 2016 Presidential Elections Will Play Out 

I generally stay out of political discussions, and the following is not an endorsement of any candidate. One of the best exercises for writers is that of "What If," and over the last couple of days, I was doing this with this year's candidates.  Nostradamus, I'm not, but I'd like to record some predictions.

If I'm wrong, I'm wrong, but if I'm right, it'd be nice to have a record of my predictions before the fact. So, here goes. - I am writing this on February 16, 2016
