Lorraine Ray writes novels and short stories. Born into an old Tucson family, she has carried forward their interest in writing. Her great grandfather was a civilian packer with Gen. George Crook's army and late in life became a familiar pest at the Arizona Historical Society where his autobiographies MY LIFE IN THE WEST and REMINISCENCES AS TOLD TO MRS. KITT are now kept far away from the public. The author of TROMBONES CAN LAUGH and A PHANTOM HERD married an Englishman and has spent many summer vacations with her husband and daughter tramping across the South Downs and avoiding sheep droppings. Besides writing, one of her favorite jobs was a two-year stint as a crazy lunch lady.

Lorraine Ray I like writing dialog, especially humorous exchanges. I like reading what I've written aloud.

Sometimes I like to pair my books and compare and contrast what I've written to see what kind of a world I'm portraying in my fiction. One of my favorite pairings is Juan and Willy and Last Days in the Desert. Both books feature ridiculous protagonists; young men in the case of Juan and Willy, and young women, Tiffany, Yadira, and Stacie in Last Days in the Desert. I like the fact that the coll...

Six Years by Harlan Coben
"After reading Missing You, I got Six Years. All the usual Harlan Coben elements are present: a missing person, mysterious events that seen unconnected, all coalescing bit by bit as the book draws to a close. I read Harlan Coben because of the stor..." Read more of this review »
Two Rivers by Zoe Saadia
"I think that historical fiction should be entertaining, while being expertly researched and teaching the reader about the period. Two Rivers ticks these boxes, and more. It's a simple story, written in Zoe Saadia's very, very readable style, but i..." Read more of this review »
