Editorial Reviews


"This is an amazing, completely unforgettable memoir-style type of book, and I am so glad I came across it. Highly recommended." ~ T N Traynor Reviews

"Rich with description, this deep dive into the culture of Japan is nicely complemented with the exploration of the inner world of the main character. Rarely do characters feel like 'real people' but author Colin Rink writes with such candor about the human experience that one feels they know the protagonist by the end of the story. Chase of the Rising Sun is a very enjoyable read."
~ Stellar Media

"Great read. Definitely recommend!"
~ Amazon Reviewer

"Chase of the Rising Sun offers an enthusiastic narration of a young man pursuit of bliss and fulfilment in the region of his childhood fantasy, Tokyo, Japan, which led him to ditch his listless existence in Vancouver. The narrator is completely enchanted by everything in Japan, and his passionate tone welcomes readers to join in his adventure with the absurdities, amusements, mysteries and challenges of living and working in the country. Reading like a memoir, Colin Rink delivers impeccable first-person narration, rich dialogue, an explosive ending, and a fun, easy, enjoyable read." 
~ IndieReader

Hello everybody!

I am a writer from Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. I first started writing short stories that were passed around to friends and family in 2010. As part of a nationwide tour as a musician, I released a book of poetry titled 'A Walk, Uphill in the Snow' which was a collection of works from a poetry project I completed in 2008 where I wrote a poem everyday for a year. My first book 'Chase of the Rising Sun' was released in February of 2021, and a large group of the proceeds will be donated to the survivors and families affected by the earthquake and Tsunami that occurred in Japan on March 11, 2011.

When I'm not reading or writing, I enjoy playing video games (Metal Gear Solid is my favourite), listening to music and getting out to the beautiful surroundings of Vancouver; hiking, camping and playing softball. When Covid-19 is over, I look forward to travelling abroad again.

I am always around for questions and good conversation, so reach out! Ask me anything and feel free to find me on instagram @colinrink.thewriter!
