Ondine Brooks Kuraoka

Ondine Brooks Kuraoka

In the six years since she began her freelance career Ondine Brooks Kuraoka has written over 100 articles.

Her work has appeared in San Diego Family Magazine, San Diego Magazine, The San Diego Union-Tribune, Today’s Local News and Living in Style Magazine (contributing writer for the past three years). She also writes press releases and has completed travel guide projects for MSN.com in collaboration with Ford and Toyota.

The recent death of Living in Style Magazine lit a fire under Ondine’s chair to commit more time to her fiction, where her passion dances.

She credits her writing group with inspiring her to keep on through all the crises of confidence that a writer faces. Like sunrise, these women are unstoppable.

Ondine was born in Guaymas, Mexico where she lived with her parents on a sailboat. She was raised in San Diego, earned a BA in psychology from Boston University and also studied in Heidelberg, Germany and Guanajuato, Mexico. She received her Master’s in Social Work from Smith College School for Social Work in Northampton, Massachusetts. Her social work experience provides her with a window into the strength of the human spirit in the darkest moments.

Ondine writes from her home in San Diego. She has two young sons and a coyote-spirited dog whose previous life was spent howling the news from a roof in Mexico. Her husband is also a writer.

Hi,
Had to find out a little more about you. Your bio explains why your posts are more about the writing life, than about your writing life only.

I will keep a watch for your other posts.
