Welcome to Yu Sakurazawa’s transgender book website. I have been writing transgender romance and other LGBT related novels since 1997. Most of transgender fictions that I write are in the genre of LBGT. Some are serious love romances, others are fantasies, horrors and suspense stories. Most of my stories involve some sexual interaction (as other love stories do) but are not erotica.
Read the following article introducing the most popular series.

Greetings from Yu Sakurazawa
Hello, I am Yu Sakurazawa. Yu is a Japanese female name and is pronounced as “you”.
I have been writing transgender novels since 1997 when I was a student. So, this is my 19th year as a fiction writer. I was born in Fukushima, Japan, have lived in United States for 8 years and now live in Chiba. My novels were all in Japanese until I published the English version of “Enchanted into the Third Gender” and after that I have been publishing English stories regularly.
All my fictions have gender change episodes in some way or another. Areas of my personal interest are fashion, tv-dramas and traveling. I traveled to India more than 10 times dressed in Saree or Salwar Kameez (Punjabi dress), have soaked in Indian culture up to my neck. My personal experiences are reflected in my “Hijra, the Third Gender” series of books.
