Yurie Kiri’s novel Moonlight Beach won the 2020 Hollywood Book Festival’s award for Genre Fiction.  Moonlight Beach is about four friends who contact the spirit of dead Native American woman and have to fight for their lives against the serial killer who had been chasing her.  The second book in the series, where two of the surviving women of Rancho California take a trip to New Mexico, is called Moonlight Canyon.  The third book, called Moonlight Rocks is about a battle over a meteorite that may herald the birth of a new Messiah.  Besides the Moonlight series, Yurie Kiri has also written a series of books about Japan and virtual reality games; the first book is called Tokyo Games and the second one called Osaka Games (not yet released) won the 2022 Beach Book Festival award for Genre Fiction.

 

Yurie Kiri is a shy, secretive person who sometimes lives on a boat, sailing between various ports in the Pacific Ocean.  Sailing, writing and photography are the main passions in Yurie Kiri’s life.

 

Yurie Kiri speaks Japanese, English, French and has studied Chinese, Arabic and Spanish as well as a smattering of other languages such as Korean and Russian along with binary and hexadecimal machine language because if you really want to get to know someone you need to speak their language no matter if they’re machine or human.  Yurie lived and worked in Asia for decades before recently coming to America where Yurie went on an extensive backroad journey all across the US and Canada from the rough Mexican border towns to the town of Yellowknife in Canada’s NWT where you need to cross a frozen lake to get into town.  Yurie also sailed (single-handed) from Mexico to the Canadian border, retracing a well-traveled road journey by sea in a small, live aboard sail boat.  Yurie has been traveling and gathering story ideas from Asia for the Game Series which covers Japan and other Asian countries and North America for the Murder and Mystery Series which covers the American Southwest.
