About the Authors
I'm Bob Kaku. I was born in Kyushu, southwest Japan. I live in the San
Francisco Bay Area and graduated from the University of California at
Berkeley. I work in information technology and specialize in data architecture
and business intelligence. I'm married to Gail.
Welcome! I'm Gail Kaku, a Japanese American from Southern California. I graduated from the University of Southern California.
My background is in information technology with a special emphasis in databases. I've managed projects and led the development efforts in systems analysis, re-engineering, and the entire gamut of software for every phase from inception through implementation.
It amazed me that writing a book would be far harder than any software project I've ever worked on, which included developing satellite tracking software with a bunch of physicists who had no idea of what the end product would look like.
After nearly seven years of working full-time on a single writing project and doing nothing else, Popcorn Miracles was born. Tada!
I thought the second book
would be easier. Wrong! This time we opened up submissions to many published
authors from writers conferences and other events. Little did I know
I would be editing the entire manuscript, which turned out to be quite
daunting. After four years, the global, multi-cultural Kernels
of Hope was born. You
now have the popcorn with the kernels!
During the time I worked on both books, my husband Bob had an idea of writing a novel. Since he devoted much of his evenings helping me with the first two books, I collaborated with him and rewrote and polished his novel. After eight years of extensive research, interviews with a number of people who experienced WWII, and multiple trips to Japan, Cherry Blossoms in the Storm was born.
When you work on a book together with your husband, it's shocking to learn how different men think.
We did these books because we care about people and want them to really think about their lives. Are they fulfilled? Is there an empty void? Have they met the Living God? Which road leads to eternal salvation? Life is too short and these are very important questions to think about.
