About the author

John Rachel has a B. A. in Philosophy, has traveled extensively, is a songwriter and music producer, and an evolutionary humanist. He has spent his life trying to resolve the intrinsic clash between the metaphysical purity of Buddhism and the overwhelming appeal of narcissism.

He is author of nine novels, three non-fiction political books, and one creative non-fiction fantasy/travel/cookbook, as well as hundreds of articles, short stories, and poems. Currently in development is a new novel set in Africa, and an American satire on the self-help crazes of the 80s and 90s.

Author Rachel has explored or lived in thirty-four countries since leaving America August of 2006. He now lives in a quiet, traditional, rural Japanese community, where he finds infinite delight in the ringing of temple bells three times a day by monks at a local Shinto shrine. These days he is mostly immersed in good vibrations.

Update #59 - 50% Sale on ebooks of LIVE FROM JAPAN! July 2, 2022

July Sale on LIVE FROM JAPAN ebooks!

Why write a book?

I write to entertain, and make people happy. 

It appears that I've hit the mark with the readers of LIVE FROM JAPAN!

"LIVE FROM JAPAN is a lovely book in many ways. The spirit of the book is to encourage community between John Rachel's adopted country and his birth country and the book itself invites, entertains, nourishes and charms, supporting that end." - Amazon  April 26, 2021

"An expats perspective which sheds light on the unique and quirky aspects of Japanese country life. Highlights include anecdotal descriptions of the great care taken in daily rituals, food customs, and the courtesy extended to people and place." - Amazon  May 15, 2021

"John's perceptions reminded me of my mixture of awe and puzzlement over Japanese ways and how each generation has distinctive formative influences." - Amazon  March 15, 2021
