Jonelle Patrick Author

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, and Sisters in Crime. I now split my time between San Francisco and Tokyo, where I still discover stuff that delights and entertains, every single day.

My new book, The Last Tea Bowl Thief, will be published by Seventh Street Books on October 20, 2020
