About the Author

My name is Keith Hayden.

I've lived in Okinawa, Japan for a total of 4 years. I deeply enjoy the Japanese language and culture. I'm also fascinated by stories and cultures of all kinds.

During a magnificent vacation to the Maldives in September 2023, I decided to begin writing this book.

Many of the scenarios and scenery in the story are based on my time at the resort (but the story is completely fictional).

Throughout my nearly 2 decades learning Japanese, reading has been one of the activities I've avoided the most.

If you've been learning Japanese for a little while, you know why.

It's HARD. And it takes a long time to read anything interesting without relying on English translations.

After years of putting it off (a few of those living and working in Japan) I decided I was done with not understanding Japanese.

2023 would be THE year I finally learned to read. So this year I've gone. in.

After hundreds of hours of grinding tools like WaniKani, The Kanji Study app, Pimsleur, and countless podcasts, I've moved closer to my goal, but I'm still not there yet, though I'm improving daily.

Why tell you this story?

I want you to know you're not alone in learning this language.

Like you I've been in the trenches with Japanese. It's a hard language that I've seen many people quit before reaching their goals with it.

Hell, I've quit at least 3 times over the years. It was too hard. I didn't have enough time etc. etc. (you know all the reasons/excuses).

But I came back, and now I'm beginning to see the result of all the time I've put into it. You can too.

While this book isn't "the only thing you need to learn Japanese" it is another strong step in your long journey to Japanese proficiency.

You stand to unlock lucrative jobs, unseen opportunities to connect with Japanese culture, deeper relationships and more with this potentially life-changing step.

Will you take it?
