News for you!

Hey guys! I know it’s been forever since I’ve posted on Big California Dreamin. It seems that despite my best efforts, I am not a blogger ( : I am, however, a diligent writer, and over the last few months, I’ve been making an effort to create new content and compile existing content at HanaHawley.Com

My husband and  have moved from the City of Angels to the Land of the Rising Sun–specifically, to Tokyo (this is the beginning of our fourth week here)! This is an exciting season in our lives and I can’t wait to share all of our adventures (and misadventures) with you. You can begin to read my ongoing mini-novel at Hanako and Jiro in Japan

For those of you who have read my “Searching for Seoul” posts here, I will be adding periodically to that body of content on my website too–only bursts of information because I’m in the middle of writing a memoir about the journey to find my dad and find myself in the process. I can’t wait to share more with you. I didn’t mean to leave you hanging last summer. Just so you know, I DID meet my Apa (my dad!). I didn’t know what to expect, but it was good, and it was also very difficult in ways I did not expect. Searching for Seoul

I’ve started a book review page too. Like many of you, I’m always on the search for a good read and while I think all reading is beneficial to some extent, there are always books more worthy of our time or better for our individual hearts. As Francis Bacon said, “Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.” Hana’s Book Reviews

My debut novel, Tomahawk Hill is still waiting for the perfect publisher to come along. In the meantime, I’ve written a second novel that my amazing literary agent is finding a home for. I hope to have more news for you guys about these two novels soon!
