David Kudler is an author, editor, and publisher living just north of San Francisco, California with his wife, teacher/author Maura Vaughn, his author-to-be daughters, and their (apparently) non-literary cats. He is best known as the editor of Joseph Campbell's The Hero with a Thousand Faces.
His children's picture book The Seven Gods of Luck was adapted from a Japanese folktale. Two books that he edited for Joseph Campbell Foundation (Sake & Satori andMyths of Light) explore Japanese mythology and religion. He has written about places other than Japan -- but his imagination keeps returning to the Land of the Rising Sun.
