The title of that other work of hers is Bookman, which has the character of Lavi as the protagonist, of course.
Bookman, supposedly, follows Lavi and the bookmens' exploits searching for the secret history of the world, according to what Hoshino-sensei replied in an interview for Jump.

When Hoshino-sensei began the creation for D.Gray-man manga, she liked very much the characters for both Bookman and Lavi that decided to move and placed them inside the D.Gray-man storyline.

Moreover, before those mangas Hoshino-sensei wrote her first work which was titled as Zone.
This is a one-shot manga which serves as both the template and the basis for the creation of D.Gray-man. In fact, Hoshino-sensei explained as well that many of the characters (including the Earl and Allen) in D.Gray-man first appeared in Zone.

Zone unofficially establishes and introduces for the first time the D.Gray-man universe with the Akuma & their creation, the Earl, and the characters of the Order.
A curious aspect of Zone is that the main protagonist is a teenaged-girl.

Hoshino-sensei further went to explain that for D.Gray-man she took that main female lead and put her inside the storyline but changed many of her traits and characteristics to make her look more boyish, which at the end resulted with the conception and birth of Allen Walker's character.
Thanks for the info, Guido. I appreciate it. Really interesting.

People you're going to like what I've found.

After a while of intrigue and search, I found a blog site which posted pictures taken from the AnimagIC 2008 convention which took place in Germany.

This of great interest because the owner from that site was able to take and secure pictures of Hoshino-sensei in her first public appearance.

This is the link to the site which contains an interview entry about Hoshino-sensei.

Sensei, may I humbly advise that the specs be changed to a steel-rimmed one? Braces are too late, I believe.

Me too. I read the raw even though I don't understand Japanese. Yeah,really glad she is doing well. Waiting for the scanlation before making further discussion on the new chapter.

Finally read the scanlation. Love it,divine possession and the second. Did anyone but me think that divine possession 'second' looks like Timonty+Link?:P Also, I find the 2 Akumas comment on Akuma turn into Innocence really funny. Definitely awesome chapter and return.

Looking forward for next week chapter.

Surely, the patience and good will paid off.

Hoshino-sensei returned back the storyline and did so with a stylish bang.

Spoiler:


Thank you very much, Hoshino-sensei and okaerinasai.

YES! I knew this power seemed familiar, but couldn't place it.

Just read.WHOO!Seeing that little update flasher blinking on screen had me throwing my hands up and exclaiming infront of the comp like a dork X) So glad Hoshino sensei is well and back on track now
179th felt a bit short in content, but I suppose it's gonna gradually pick up the pace again. The style change was a bit dramatic to me though, esp with timmy's new innocence form. Not necessarily in a bad way but definitely something more unfamiliar and takes longer to digest.
And BAHH!!We only got to see
Spoiler:

Wonder what's gonna happen with Link, anyone worried about how he's gonna survive from the puppifiying attack?AND MARIE'S FINGERS!!D: sigh...

Yeah,only 1 page and 1 column each.T_T Link and the others who turn into puppet might be save by Timonty's new innocence form by countering the dark matter effect,since Timonty DIVINE POSSESSED the six-sec level 2 Akuma.:P As for Marie's finger, I think nothing can be done except replacing by artificial finger(if got from the science department).:P If his fingers coming back in one piece, the fans and other people reading it will seriously be pissed off although I'm pity and sad for he's loss fingers but at least he's still alive(for now).

Next chapter will probably be focusing on how Timonty's innocence work first,might got some update on the battle between Allen and the others and the level 4.
I think this arc will end at around 2-4 chapters,which is most likely this month.
