Francis Duffy began writing via letters home to a loved one who’d ordered: “Show me places I’ll never see except through your eyes. . . . No details are too small.” That led to war (Danang, ChuLai), then college (LA, SF, Tokyo) & grad school (TX, HI), then editing/writing at newspapers (Tokyo, Jeddah, Seoul), magazines (TX, Tokyo), tech pubs (Tokyo), then web-content work (DC). And, lately, fiction.
