Author Bio

Charles Pomeroy was born in Beloit Wisconsin on Nov.6, 1930, enlisted in the U.S. Navy at age 17, and became an aviation electronicsman. As an aircrewman with Patrol Squadron 6, he flew 79 missions out of Japan during the Korean War. A subsequent assignment in 1954 took him to Rome, Italy, where he served with the Naval Attaché and where acquaintance with Japanese diplomats led to his return to Japan as a student in 1957. After graduating from Tokyo's Sophia University in 1962, he freelanced as a translator, then became a correspondent in 1966 covering Japan’s healthcare sector until retirement in 2004. His retirement took him to a new home in his wife's hometown of Otsuchi on Japan's Sanriku Coast. There, he returned to his earlier ambition of creating woodblock prints that was ended by the tsunami of March 11, 2011. His latest book, "Tsunami Reflections," provides insights on that disaster. He authored two earlier books, "Traditional Crafts of Japan" and "Pharma Delegates."
