BIO: Born in 1932, R. H. Kohno (a pen name) has been interested in writing ever since he had a couple of poems published by his teacher when he was five years old. He was thrown into the concentration camps with his mother during WWII while his father was arrested by the FBI since he had access to a fishing boat and was suspected of contacting nonexistent enemy submarines. He was put into separate detention centers. After the war, Kohno repatriated to war-torn postwar Japan to spend thirteen years there in isolated exile as an outsider and American lookalike. Returning to the United States after a stint working for CIA in Tokyo, he settled down to get married and complete his college education, eventually earning a B.A. in English and being elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He kept alive his interest in writing and in 2001 produced his first novel, The Last Fox, A Novel of the 100th/442nd RCT. It has been followed by other works, the latest of which is Starburst Over China
