Jayne says: "Gil The Gecko is a character from my very first children's book, written in English and Japanese! I wrote the book while living on Okinawa in 1994. Geckos are plentiful on Okinawa and help keep the nasty bugs in check. They lived in our base housing quarters and climbed the walls, visited me in the kitchen while washing dishes, and were just plain cute (see photo). After finding myself talking to one, I decided a story about a boy gecko and his adventures on Okinawa would be perfect!"

In June of 1995 the book was self-published on Okinawa and was an instant success -- it sold out within two weeks! Currently, Jayne is looking for an agent to represent her or a publisher for her proposed series about Gil The Gecko.
