Born in Memphis, Tennessee, and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Blue Spruell lived and worked in Japan for several years before returning to Atlanta. A trial lawyer and certified mediator, he runs his own firm, The Outlaw Firm, specializing in family law and civil litigation. An internationally recognized black belt instructor, he also owns Peachtree Aikikai, a dōjo for Japanese martial arts.
Some years ago, I saw a parallel between the personalities of Japan’s
three Great Unifiers and Momotarō’s animal companions, the pheasant,
monkey, and dog. I thought it might be amusing to write a short story
drawing on this comparison. What began as a little excursion became
a grand adventure. While the rest may not be history per se, I hope the
reader will enjoy this new yarn as much as I enjoyed spinning it.
