About Ray Stone

I’m Ray Stone, an accomplished author with a variety of published works to my name. Born just outside London in 1946, I grew up in post war Britain during a period of depression and ration books, bombed out housing and BBC radio. At school I won a writing competition at the age of eleven and later in my teens went on to widen my interest in the arts by having no fewer than four self-developed monochrome photos hung in the ESSEX Worldwide Salon of Photography competition in my home town of Southend on Sea. At the age of eighteen I began writing poetry and lyrics whilst studying at college. Two years later I was working in theatre as a technician and worked with many orchestras' and artists including the London Philharmonic, London Symphony, Mantovani, The Doyle Carte Opera Company, Harlequin Ballet, Joan Baez, Jimmy Hendrix, Oscar Peterson and worked on local shows such as My Fair Lady, Camelot and West Side Story. My poetry won me first place in 1998 in an international internet poetry competition with ‘An Angry Silence.’ Moving to Colchester in the same year I wrote a full page article about the historical significance of the locale and was published with a by-line in the local press. Whilst writing my first novel I returned to writing lyrics and teamed up with a local composer. Together we produced and recorded five blues numbers. I also published a short poetry and lyric book entitled Life over a cup of Tea. My novel, ‘THE TROJAN TOWERS,’ was published in 2005. A second political thriller, ‘ISIA'S SECRET,’ the first in a trilogy of Enda Osin mystery novels, was published in 2013. The second in the trilogy, TWISTED WIRE, will be released in 2014. The last thriller in the trilogy, GLASSFROGS and CHAMELLIONS, is due to be published in early 2015. All books are available through Amazon and other leading outlets and starting with Isia's Secret, I am having my works made into AUDIO at ACX. My favourite authors are Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Neville Shute, Alistair Maclean, C.S.Forrester, Len Deighton, Daniel Silva, Ernest Hemingway - and the list goes on. I have lived in and around London's colourful EastEnd and the café sets of Westminster and Kensington. Rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous-and infamous I have acquired a unique insight into the lives of both criminal and upper classes that give my works a believable realism. I moved to the USA in 2003 and married. I have since retired from a successful landscape design business and now live on Malta with my wife and fellow author, Mrellan Harahan. I am now the serial manager for The Story Mint, a unique New Zealand publishing company that encourages and teaches new writers the art of literary creativity . My ambition is to publish several books and appear on a TV chat show. I would love to meet novalists Daniel Silva, Michael Connelly, and Dan Brown.I would also like to meet Julia Roberts but I guess I'll have to wait until I'm rich and famous.

Review by: Michael Myers on Oct. 17, 2013 :
Read this book when it first was printed. Was quite impressed with the descriptive details and enjoyed the British way writing that Ray uses to tell this unique story. I couldn't wait to read the next page and completed it in less than 4 sessions. I had to eat and sleep in between and work was not optional or I'd have forgone everything to finish this one. Ray had this book reedited and a reread is warranted!

If you like action and travel, this is a good book for you. Follow up with his new one "Isia's Secret" a very well polished tale in the Mediterranean!

I found this to be an exciting and intelligent story, very intense in places and hard to put down. The characters are three-dimensional and show a lot of life and humanity. Stone's attention to detail in describing the various cities as the players and action hops around the globe gave me the feeling of being there and feeling at home. I would recommend the book to anyone, hang on to your hat the ride is exhilarating, and the finish is brilliant.

Ray Stone is an author on the rise, and The Trojan Towers is his first published novel. He weaves fascinating plot twists with enchanting characters. Being his first work, some things are a little rough - but well worth the read and it's FREE! If you're looking for a good thriller, some hot action and a little blood, you've found it here.

Review by: Nora Lee on Aug. 21, 2013 :
The plot and characters in this espionage tale are riveting. There are flaws that should have been caught during editing, such as when tape was put over a guards eyes then another man silently motioned for him to follow directions. Another instance was near the end when a helicopter took off from the towers, then about five minutes later crashed into the sea a hundred or so feet away with no explanation of why.
As in many action yarns the action isn't always plausible but it keeps the tension and intensity at high levels if the reader doesn't get too technical.
There are many grammatical errors such as confusion of the words, there, their and they're. There are missing words, extra words and misused words. However, the storytelling over rides the amount of errors and I found it a very good read despite the many errors.
