Kay Ohara

Growing up in the U.S. and Japan, Kay Ohara enjoys reading both vertically and horizontally. Her taste for both cultures is evident in

the jars of umeboshi and peanut butter that sit side by side in her tiny fridge in Manhattan. She has been scouting titles for Random House Kodansha and she now peddles foreign rights on behalf of Kodansha's Japanese authors.
