Message from the author
I've finished writing my second novel "Senkou Scramble". My previous work "Pink & Gray" has been read by many people and I received a lot of support, I'm very thankful for this and it also brought me self-confidence. There are many new challenges I want to experience as NEWS member and novelist.
The title "Senkou Scramble" symbolizes the camera's flash, the bewilderment of entertainment world, the blending of Akiko and Takumi's lives. I've collected my fighting spirit and I wrote again something that only I could write, an entertaining work. I will be happy if you'll read this.
