was a fundamentalist minister when he was published in Stealer's Sky. His superiors
asked him not to use his own name, to save any possible "embarrassment" of a
minister of their faith writing for a fantasy anthology. Therefore, Randy used
his middle name, Duane.
He's left the ministry and church since then, due to "philosophical growth
and mythological understanding," as he puts it, and has worked as a grant writer
for the past several years. Though his recent creative focus has been in developmental
mythology, he hopes to begin work on fantasy fiction again soon."
