About the author:

Born in 1932, R.H. Kohno grew up in the Los Angeles area until World War II broke out. He and his mother were evacuated to the inland concentration camps without his father who was arrested by the FBI on the night of the Pearl Harbor attack. He was a fisherman who had access to a boat, and he was suspected of potentially contacting enemy submarines.

After the war, he repatriated with his mother and father to war-torn, postwar Japan in 1946. His mother was an American, a Nisei, and she couldn’t speak or read the language and had a very difficult time. As a Sansei, third generation Japanese American, R.H. Kohno couldn’t speak or read the language, either. He entered Japanese school as a thirteen-year old fourth grader, survived a grueling schedule of studies and went on to go to St. Joseph College, a Marianist high school in Yokohama where he excelled in his studies. He was later recruited by a U.S. intelligence agency to be an interpreter/translator.

Returning to the United States in 1959 to get married and complete his education, he entered the University of Washington to major in English, the Advanced Writing Curriculum, and Far Eastern Studies, and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He was editor-in-chief of the campus literary magazine, Assay. He taught briefly at the University of Oregon.

He is the author of a number of works which include The Last Fox, A novel of the 100th/442nd RCT; The River of Time, A Collection of Short Stories, and Westward Lies The Sun written under his real name, Robert H. Kono. R.H. Kohno is a pen name which he has adopted to differentiate from his other works namely, Eye of the Star and The StarMind Alert, both psychic thrillers. He has two sons, David and Kevin, living in Utah and Oregon.
