Crismani and I worked for the same long distance telecommunications company
in the mid- to late-1990s, and we stayed in touch after our occupational
ways parted in late 1998.
Eddie is an ex-pat Australian
with an interesting background, having grown up in an opal mining area
of Oz known as Coober Pedy. If the name sounds familiar to you, it
should: movies such as The Red Planet, Pitch Black, and the Mad Max series
were all filmed in that area.
Eddie and his brother
Michael have two scripts out, one of which - "Coober
Pedy", a drama based on their childhood experiences in Coober Pedy
- is making the rounds in Hollywood at this moment. (Both scripts
are registered with the WGA.)
The other script - "Make
the Burning Stop" - is a comedy about two Aussie lads and their escapades
in the States and is being edited to match the requirements of another

Fisk and I met up in 2000 when we both worked for a credit card transaction
processing company. I needed a rideshare and Kevin was looking for
someone to make the 45 minute drive to work less quiet.
Everyone I meet has an
interesting story to tell, and Kevin is no exception. Involved in
an accident some years ago (he was hit - twice - by two drunk drivers as
he attempted to help someone involved in an earlier accident) he spent
some weeks in a coma and was not expected to recover.
Not only did he confound
the dire predictions, he resumed his career as a remarkable software engineer.
His credits include work on the Shuttle, TRW's credit scoring system, and
Movie Magic's ScreenWriter 2000.

Killick is another much-traveled ex-pat Aussie, who currently resides with
his family in the north of England. He and I met some time in the
mid 1980s during a period when I ran an international computer user group
(ITUG) out of my cavernous bedsit in Oxford, and he had escaped from the
turmoil in South Africa as it tore itself free from apartheid.
As we bounced around
the globe we managed to stay in touch, but it wasn't until the last couple
of years that we switched from a focus on computing to one on writing.
