Welcome to The Raffle: Your Chance Of A Lifetime.

Trust and show trust. Those are the rules of the New United States. Everyone must follow the rules.

In a dark vision of the near future, Los Angeles has become a desolate wasteland after a prolonged biological and nuclear attack that paralyzed California on a day that the rest of the nation celebrated independence. Now for the unlucky New Angelinos, there is only one way out: gain entry into the New United States through The Raffle.

When raffler Ramsey Arami finds himself with the winning number after ten years of trying, he sees it as the golden ticket to finally reunite with his wife and daughter in the New United States. That is, if he can follow the rules of the New United States.

about the author

The real person behind Randy Smith (a pen name) was born in Downtown L.A. in 1977. An avid punk rock fan, Randy played in several punk bands in the early to mid 90s. In college, Randy specialized in international relations and history. After teaching for a year, Randy moved to Washington, D.C. for law school. Randy has been a practicing attorney for the past sixteen years.

“Randy Smith” was conceived four years ago when his creator quit driving to work and opted for public transportation instead. Ditching his car was a life-changing decision. The long cross-town commutes on L.A. Metro trains and buses allowed Randy the creative space he needed to write “The Raffle” series and several screenplays, including one film now in development. Randy is currently working on writing/screenwriting projects while still working as a full-time attorney and on his other passions: husband, standup comic/actor, law professor, public transportation activist, and podcaster.
