My name is Oskar Karash, and I'm the author of "The REUNION", which is my first fiction project. I was born in Baku, Azerbaijan, a former republic of the U.S.S.R. I emigrated to the U.S. in 1990 after being a "refusenik" for 10 years. I live in Houston, Texas, with my wife Rena. I'm a Ph.D. in Engineering and worked as an executive for several International Corporations in Baku, Houston, Moscow and Seoul, and traveled all over the world. Needless to say that I'm a die-hard Beatles fan and collector.
