About Lorraine Ray

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.

Circus Screamer
Here's a Karl King circus screamer to get you in the mood for Trombones Can Laugh. Be sure to read the comments from musicians about the difficulty of playing this song, Barnum and Bailey's Favorite. Someone wrote the euphonium part equals death and a trombone player is talking about slides flying. The circus poster reminds me of Moses' desire to give children a happy day to remember.
