Blue Spruell lived and worked in Japan for several years before settling in Atlanta. A trial lawyer and certified mediator, he runs The Outlaw Firm, specializing in family law and civil litigation. In his "spare" time, he teaches Japanese martial arts at Peachtree Aikikai. His debut novel Taro is an Indie B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree and CIPA Book Award winner.

“Taro was a father-daughter project during the pandemic, a grand adventure into Japanese history, culture and myth intended to introduce new generations to Japan and its quintessential heroes through a classic tale of betrayal, revenge and honor."
