Dear Dr Reilly
Thank you for your email and I hope it was in the correct form that you specified.
My name is Austen and I live in Melbourne too. Thank you for writing such an inspiring book. I absolutely love your take on Nohime and how you truly imagined her character and her feelings based on historical records. Would you know any other books about the life of Nobunaga? Where can I read an english version of the Oda Chronicle and the Akechi Chronicle?
Thank you so much for your kind comments on my book, Kicho & Nobunaga. The best bet for finding more books on Nobunaga including the Oda Chronicle, would be in Amazon. Just enter key word “Nobunaga” and you will see a few, which are available in English.
