Rebecca Kool is passionate about travel, language and culture. A risk-taker at heart, Rebecca's wanderlust surfaces regularly. At the age of 50 she moved to Japan where she taught English, traveled extensively, and made many friends.
Rebecca currently lives in British Columbia, Canada. Fly Catcher Boy, a bi-lingual (English/Japanese) tale for children, was first released in 2009 by Gumboot Books. In 2012 Rebecca re-worked and re-launched her first publication as an interactive bi-lingual iBook, combined with "manga-style" illustrations, designed to entertain and teach children about Japan's culture and language.
A print version is also available on Amazon.com.
2013 promises to be a year full of excitement, expanded opportunities, travel, new friends, and an overflow of performance readings, done in Japan's old-style storytelling known as "kamishibai".
