The Story Behind the Book

I started this book when I was around thirteen years of age.  Ninjas of the Mountains started as a short mystery story that I wrote for a school assignment.  It was originally a few pages long, but I did some research, changed and added to the plot, and changed the character’s names.

My dream as an author is to have this book made into a movie, and for me to be able to act as Marisaka in it.  This sounds a bit silly and unrealistic, I know, but I think that it would be cool.
