J. S. Frankel

J.S. Frankel was born in Toronto, Canada, many moons ago, and managed to scrape through the University of Toronto with a degree in English Literature and Political Science. He took his skills to Japan a few years after graduation and taught English to anyone who would listen to him.

In 1997, he married the charming Akiko Koike, and with their two children, Kai and Ray, Frankel makes his home in Osaka where he still teaches English to anyone who will listen to him and writes during the evening until the wee hours of the morning. Death Bytes is his third published novel to date, and he will release two more novels next year, Twisted and Lindsay versus the Marauders.
