Brian Rushton


I'm a tester for Microsoft Windows and a pretty dang good husband and dad. I graduated from the University of Washington and have lived pretty much my whole life in Washington state, except for two years in the Oriental Republic of Uruguay on a church mission. I still pronounce the "LL" in "tortilla" like an "SH".

I don't really think of myself as an author - I'm definitely keeping my day job - but I evidently had enough science fiction ideas floating around in my head to put them into a book. (I've pondered a sequel off and on, although The Plasma Master definitely stands on its own.)

And finally, I can twitch my finger tendons back and forth over my knuckles.
