Cold Awakening Part 1, takes us to the frozen Seattle Winter of 1996. Most of the places, the people and things that happen in this story are based on my own real life experiences and those lives that crossed my path. Little did I know that my years spent in downtown Seattle in the early to mid 1990's would culminate into this tale that literally just starting pouring out of me back in 2010. My decision to split this into parts 1 and 2, at least for the first stretch of this telling, is based on how episodes of stories in decades past were published in magazines or newspapers once or twice a month, until the public were able to get to the juicy ending they'd been waiting for. It is written into separate parts similar to diary / screenplay format as I hope to pursue this being brought to any size screen I can. Part 2 is nearing completion and it will be available soon. I hope you all enjoy this introduction to the world of Billy and Trixie, that until now, has only existed in the dark recesses of my wandering mind. Enjoy.
