RINA HORIUCHI grew up in a magical, manga world surrounded by bookcases of Japanese comics. Today she’s writing her own books, still inspired by Japanese kids’ literature and art. She collaborates with her illustrator-sister, Risa Horiuchi, on book ideas. At her day job, Rina works as a web and user experience designer. She loves the challenge of presenting information that is simple, beautiful, and elegant—like a picture book. Rina recently moved to New York and enjoys walks with her husband and daughter in Central Park.
