D.M. A native Arizonan lives in Scottsdale, Traveling has inspired several of his books throughout the years, including historical fiction, especially with a mystery thrown in. Sue Lee Mysteries started after visiting an antique shop in Honolulu with the purchase of a vintage World War Two recruitment poster for women to serve. It was haunting knowing all the possibilities open for the woman during those perilous times. These thoughts were set aside until the rental of a vacation houseboat in Sausalito, California that was decorated in Japanese art and artifacts, including a fat, happy Buddha statue on the outside deck that became Uncle Yoshi of course.
