Raising an Autistic Child
Keiko Tobe was born in Amagasaki in Hyougo, Japan. She graduated from Kwansei Gakuin University's School of Economics and took an advertising job thereafter. When her then-newlywed existence required her to move to Tokyo with her husband, she began working as a mangaka's assistant and eventually became a mangaka herself. Though she has published numerous (primarily mystery-oriented) manga through Akita Shoten, which also published her 1986 Princess magazine debut, Hikari to tomo ni... is universally considered her masterwork. Hikari began its serialization in Akita Shoten's For Mrs. magazine in 2000 and continues to be serialized today, with the compiled volumes currently published up to Vol. 10. Tobe-sensei lives in Japan with her husband and two sons.
