The Lovereading4Kids comment

Science meets Myth when ogres armed with high-tech weaponry steal a huge telescope as part of an insane plan to cast the world into permanent darkness. With global catastrophe looming, Kenny and Kiyomi take the fight to the enemy, even if it means going out of this world. But all is not well between the friends. Kiyomi's behaviour is growing increasingly erratic and it soon becomes clear that her life - and her humanity - are in danger. Kenny is faced with an impossible choice - does he save his friend or fulfil his duty?

A Q&A with Jason about his novel, The Sword of Kuromori

1. How did you get the idea for this book?

2. How would you describe the book?

3. Which is your favourite character/theme in the book?

4. How long did it take you to write this book?

5. How did you do the research for it? Where did you look/go?

In addition to this, I picked up lots of books of Japanese folk tales and legends, some of which were written over a hundred years ago.

6. What other books have you written?

I have three other books languishing in a drawer waiting to see the light of the day, and a few articles in print, but The Sword of Kuromori is my first published novel.
