RAE BOUETT – Rae was born in Los Angeles, October 1. Hobbies are magic, writing, and dancing. You should read some of those thrillers he writes! I wouldn’t advise reading them at night, tho! He likes most everyone, and he likes most all kinds of soup. He dislikes getting up early. Isn’t that unusual? “Remember My Love” is his favorite song. His favorite stories are murder mysteries. Creative Writing and Spanish are his two favorite subjects. His ambition is to be a director-writer-producer.
