Hello everyone and welcome to my collection of hubs.  I'm proud to say that I am a writer who was born in Vientiane, Laos and raised in Westchester, NY and have been writing now for over twenty years.  I feed off of feedback and give feedback so if you'd like, I'd be more than willing to help any way I can.  Keep on writing and keep on hubbing!

If you are a newcomer to HubPages please read my hub titled An Introduction to HubPages With Snoopy and Woodstock.  It's everything I wish I knew when first I joined HubPages!

Oh, and just as a few pointers, please take a look at just a few of my short stories: Reba Ashkar is actually a novel excerpt that I will be working on in the near future...Nancy is a story about heartbreak...I, Fraternity is a novel I am currently working on...If I Had Wings is a short story that inspired me to write my first completed novel...For the Love of Buddhism, Blue Fish and The River Girl and the Boy That Loved Her are my latest short stories...My friends and colleagues tell me that The Absence of Aurora is one of their favorites...See You In the Bahamas was just recently written...Please also check out my book reviews on Harry Potter, The Giving Tree, The Sneetches, Danny, Champion of the World, Runny Babbit, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

If you're thinking about taking a vacation, I suggest Luang Prabang, Laos (rated the Number One Travel Destination in 2008; NY Times) and the entertainment capital of the world, Las Vegas.  While you are in Vegas, West Canyon is the closest Grand Canyon site and is absolutely stunning.  My newest travel hubs are Autumn in New Paltz, New York and Skiing in Lake Placid, New York which I'm sure you'll enjoy.

I've also covered all four of Disney World's Parks in Orlando, Florida, which includes Epcot Center, Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios.

And if you're getting hungry for a great meal, I suggest some pan-seared pork chops over some Jasmine rice.  It's even better if you wash it down with some Beer Lao!  Thank you for all you do.

You can now also find some of my articles on ezine as well, including Why JK Rowling's Harry Potter Series Isn't Just For Chlldren and Lafcadio: The Lion Who Shot Back by Shel Silverstein.

I was once told that fiction writing doesn't garner much attention at HubPages when I first came aboard so one day, I decided to prove all the critics wrong by writing an entire novel right here on HubPages, titled Revenge, Inc.

Thank you for visiting me!
