That's right, I've managed to have work published in the Star Wars mythos, and can be found in the Wookieepedia, check it out in the link below:

Once considered to be canon and part of the expanded universe, my short story "Droid Trouble" was first published in Star Wars Adventure Journal #3, and still exists in Star Wars Legends; although not quite as cool as being canon, it's still pretty awesome.

In addition to "Droid Trouble", I was working with the editor of the Star Wars Adventure Journal, Peter Schweighofer, on a second short story called "Discoveries" when the experience requirements for writers changed, but both stories are available to read below.

 
 

While the link above is a colorized recreation of the cover art for the short story, Droid Trouble, I've included the original illustrations by Doug Shuler below.

Nim Bola, Tavri, and Fweep go on to make appearances in the follow-up West End D6 RPG adventure: A Deal Gone Sour, published in Star Wars Adventure Journal #4. I'd also written an RPG adventure that follows up on Discoveries called Scouting Around, where the players would have the opportunity to secure the base while dealing with the kreks and a saboteur who had a story to tell. In the spirit of the Star Wars movies where the droids are the only persistent characters through the films, Fweep also makes an appearance at the end of Discoveries.  I so enjoyed writing the little droid that he was also re-imagined for FreeSpace Pirates: The Saurian Opportunity.
