About the Author

Young poetry author, later a businessperson, I became a Business English Teacher in Japan, 1989. I was doing exercises each morning, that I call 'Kick-Box-Zen,' a series of exercises, which I thought could be presented for the Olympics Mat exercise. I later applied to participate with the French Paralympics team. I was preparing for a French LLCE Degree in 2012 and wrote the children's story as a practice for my studies. Each day I would, workout, work on my language and writing skills and write a little more of the story. So one could say I had Olympic fever too!
