About the Author
Drake Star is the author’s pen name. He was born in Manhattan, New York, in the year 1983. He lived there until he was six months old. Looking back, he wished he could have stayed in Irvine. Alas, he had no choice. The first school that he attended was at Oak Hills, which he loved. Unfortunately, the author got transferred to a private school which he absolutely hated. He went there for seven years, starting from second grade to eight grade. His parents wanted him to go to a private high school but he opted to go to Granite Bay High School, MA. Drake Star always had trouble with English. He had too much imagination. However, he credits his English teachers for pushing him so hard—especially his sophomore English teacher. Otherwise he wouldn’t have embraced his English so much. After high school, he went to Sierra College and took major in Drama, much to his parents’ dismay. After Sierra college, the author joined the Free Masons in Roseville Lodge 222. He is grateful to his brother-in-law Captain Jason Tauches for inspiring him.
