Princess Shiori’anma of Kiata would rather spend her days snacking in the kitchen than attending lessons, stitching embroidery, or practicing the zither. It’s no wonder she’s been my favorite character to write! A self-proclaimed glutton, she will go to any lengths to procure rice cakes and roasted sweet potatoes at the annual Summer Festival, and when her fortunes change, she must learn to cook for herself to survive. When I was writing Six Crimson Cranes, that was where the fun began.
