Rebecca Kool is passionate about travel, language and culture. She celebrated her fiftieth birthday by leaving her job, selling her home, and moving to Japan where she would meet her husband-to-be, Takeshi Fujibe. Six years later with an opportunity for another adventure, they relocated to Lake Chapala in Mexico where Rebecca settled into writing full time, publishing three travel articles with a local magazine in addition to working on her first children's book. For her sixtieth birthday, Rebecca returned with Takeshi to Canada where she published her first book, Fly Catcher Boy, a bi-lingual (English/Japanese) story for children. This book has also been re-worked and re-launched as an iBook, complete with manga-style illustrations and audio components which allow the reader to learn to use and pronounce 50 Japanese words. She's now working on her second dual-language book while planning a new adventure for her seventieth birthday.
