About Ray Stone

Ray Stone is an accomplished author with a variety of published works to his name. Born just outside London in 1946, he grew up in post-war Britain during a period of depression and ration books, bombed out housing and BBC radio. At school, he won a writing competition at the age of eleven and later in his teens went on to widen his interest in the arts.

At the age of eighteen, he began writing poetry and lyrics whilst studying at college. Two years later Ray worked in theatre as a technician with many orchestras’ and artists including the London Philharmonic, London Symphony, Mantovani, The original 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.

His poetry won him first place in 1998 in an international internet poetry competition with ‘Angry Silence.’ Moving to Colchester in the same year he 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 his first novel Ray returned to writing lyrics and teamed up with a local composer. Together they produced and recorded five blues numbers.

A book of poetry and lyrics, Life over a cup of Tea, was published in 2011. Ray’s first novel, ‘THE TROJAN TOWERS,’ was published in 2005. A second political thriller, the first of the Enda Osin Mysteries, ‘ISIA’S SECRET,’ was published in September 2013. The next in the series, ‘TWISTED WIRE,‘ was published in September 2014. In 2015 Ray published a follow on to The Trojan Towers, a chase thriller entitled 'CRATE OF LIES.' All of his works are available in Eversion, print, and Isia's Secret on audio too. He is currently working on a period piece set around the period of the Industrial Revolution.

Ray’s 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.

Ray Stone has 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 he has acquired a unique insight into the lives of both criminal and upper classes that give his works a believable realism. Ray moved to the USA in 2003 and married. He has since retired from a successful landscape design business and now lives in Cyprus. Rays favorite saying - "It's not a good story til' somebody Dies."

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.
