I love writing books, gardening, fishing and just being outside. I started writing at the age of three. I told my Grandfather that I was going to write God a letter asking Him to send rain as grandpa’s crops was in need of water. His reply was: “You write a letter every day child.” I wrote several books as my two children were in school. Often, I loved my books too much to put an ending on them. That was and still is the hardest part of my book writing. Many times, I’d just get bored and place the book on a shelf in the closet. It would be weeks, maybe months and then I’d start another book. I stopped writing when my mother became very ill. I also lost my husband and just could not pick up a pen for a long time. I m a very fortunate person to have a Guardian Angel sent by God who insisted I pick up my pen and began my writing again. I will celebrate my 90th. birthday on July 18th. This may be my last book, depends on what my God has in store for me.

When Ray first entered the publishing industry, authors relied on “vanity presses” to produce their work – many of whom would charge $15,000 or more and leave the author’s garage filled with hundreds of books. Ray, along with coworker Alan Harris, joined forces with Miles Nelson to create Dog Ear Publishing to provide the author community a self-publisher with a heart. The group’s application of new technologies and publishing on demand reduced the cost of publishing a book to a fraction of what it had been for previous generations; authors now have the ability to publish a book in as little as six weeks and print as few as a single copy.
