Hi there.  I've been a writer for over thirty years, and there are times when I've even been paid for it.  I created the comic book character "Billy Nguyen, Private Eye," and wrote comedy joke stuff for review journals, computer games, radio people, and so on.  
I tried moving out to the Colorado Rockies in the summer of 2001 to work on my first book, the climax of which featured some bad guys taking over a plane and flying it into a skyscraper.  I moved back to Seattle in the beginning of September with my first draft, and managed to get some of the envelopes addressed before 9/11 happened.
Then, life got in the way.  Now, I'm writing a new novel.  The name hasn't quite come to me yet; I feel that most books, given a proper chance, will name themselves.  I'm going to let that process happen.  As long as the book doesn't try to name itself "Randy," I think we should be okay.
The book is about a refugee family living in Auburn, Washington, in 1979, and how they try to assimilate to the local culture.  As they are refugees from a parallel dimension, this can be difficult.
Anyway, here's Wonderwall.
