Fukuoka-based Author Dies

We were saddened to hear of the death on August 30 of Christine Lee Chinen, a teacher for many years in Fukuoka. She was the author of "Christine's Easy English Conversation for Nurses" (Christine no Yasashii Kango Eikaiwa, Igaku Shoin) and "English-Live!" (Intercom Press). She was also an active member of the Fukuoka chapter of JALT and the JALT Materials Writers SIG. She taught for several years at Fukuoka University and had recently started teaching at Kyushu University. She is survived by her husband and two daughters. There is a brief profile on the Intercom Press web site.
