Kristie Leigh Maguire and her husband have lived all over the United States and many foreign countries while following his career. While living in Japan, she found it very difficult to find books to read that were written in English. This situation was intolerable as she was an avid reader and had been known to resort to reading cereal boxes if nothing else was available. Have you ever tried to read a cereal box written in Japanese? It was not a pretty picture. Ms. Maguire began writing her own books just to have something to read. She discovered a new passion in writing.

Although Kristie Leigh Maguire is originally from the South and will always remain Southern at heart, she now divides her time between her homes in Nevada and in St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands. During her expatriate years she lived in St. Croix, Aruba, Thailand, Japan and three times in Saudi Arabia and visited many other countries.

Ms. Maguire is the Founder of Star Publish LLC, the Co-Founder of Global Publications Inc. (GAP Inc.), the Owner and Designer for Book Covers and More, and the Founder of NUW (Not the Usual Way) Authors Community.

YOU'VE GOT MAIL FROM JAPAN by Kristie Leigh Maguire
Margie and Sandy, two American expatriate women, meet and become friends while living in Saudi Arabia. After their husbands’ assignments in Saudi Arabia were completed, both women returned to their homes in the United States: Margie to Nevada and Sandy to Texas. Margie soon accompanies her husband on to his next assignment to Japan while Sandy remains at home surrounded by her family and friends.

Some things are very private—diaries, phone calls, letters, and emails between friends. You’ve Got Mail from Japan lifts that veil of privacy. The friendship between these two women shines from the pages and you feel as if you have eavesdropped on a private conversation, but accidentally, and then they smile at you and welcome you into their circle of friendship.

You’ve Got Mail from Japan consists of actual excerpts of emails between Margie and Sandy as they were written, with all the ‘warts’ and misspellings.  The writing is real and down to earth, as only emails between good friends can be. Come along and follow their incredible journey.
