The creator of The Rain Racer is Bob Elston. He lives in northern Virginia with his wife, four kids, his parents and his mother-in-law. The three-generations-under-one-roof arrangement has been in play since 2001 when Bob’s parents sold their home in California and moved in. Bob was at one time a newspaper reporter for the Los Angeles Times in Orange County and later for the Deseret News in Salt Lake City. He has worked in government as an economist and a counterterrorism expert on Southeast Asia. He has spent much time living in Asia, including Vietnam, Laos, Indonesia and China.
Bob has never blogged, admires those who do.
