Hi, I’m Jonelle Patrick

So glad our paths have crossed!

I’m the author of five mysteries set in Japan. In addition to The Last Tea Bowl Thief and the Only In Tokyo mystery series, I produce the monthly newsletter Japanagram and blog at Only In Japan. I also teach at writing workshops, appear as a panelist at Thrillerfest, and was the keynote speaker at the Arrow Rock Writing Workshop. I’m a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Language Institute, and a member of the Mystery Writers of America, International Thriller Writers, Sisters in Crime, and the Historical Novel Society. I now split my time between San Francisco and Tokyo, where I still discover stuff that delights and entertains, every single day.

My newest book, The Last Tea Bowl Thief, was published in October 2020 by Seventh Street Books

For three hundred years, a missing tea bowl passes from one fortune-seeker to the next, changing the lives of all who possess itread more
