Minna-san, konnichi wa!
My name is Marié Asano (MAH-ree-AY AH-sah-noh) and I enjoy writing fantasy and paranormal mystery. I am an author-in-progress and my current work-in-progress is an adult paranormal mystery series. I am here to chronicle my novel-writing process as well as to share my writing with the world. 🌸
About My WIPs:

Books I Read:
When I am not writing, I enjoy reading books — mostly fantasy and mystery novels — though I also enjoy reading romance, drama, and the classics. Pretty much I am open to reading a wide array of genres.
Because I enjoy different genres of books, it’s hard to limit it to one favorite, but some books I do enjoy include the Harry Potter series, Atonement, Jane Eyre, and The Odyssey.
And some of my favorite writers are Shakespeare, Charlotte Brontë, and J.K. Rowling.
Movies I Watch:
My favorite movies are Atonement, Titanic, If Only, A Walk to Remember, and Romeo and Juliet (1968).
I also have a particular fascination with true crime shows, unsolved cases, and nineteenth-century life which becomes the backdrop for my current novel.

About My Travels and How I Got into Writing:
I also enjoy traveling to Japan to visit family which is where half my header image came from as Japan was where I realized my dream of being an author (back in 2012), which I intend to make a reality. Though writing is something that I’ve always enjoyed and English is a subject I favored since high school and college, becoming an author has only come into fruition afterwards (when I was 22).
I welcome you to my new online home and encourage you to stay a while. Writing a full-length novel is going to be a ride like no other, but I do hope to take you with me on my novel-writing journey and to share my experiences with you along the way. ^^
