About Lorraine Ray

Lorraine Ray writes novels and short stories and loves to read. Born into an obscure and uninteresting Tucson family, she has carried forward her great grandfather's interest in writing. He 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 reading public. The author of LAST DAYS IN THE DESERT, TROMBONES CAN LAUGH, DASTARDLY, I WANT MY OWN BRAIN, GENUINE ABORIGINAL DEMOCRACY and A PHANTOM HERD married an Englishman and has spent several summer vacations with her husband and daughter tramping across the South Downs avoiding sheep droppings. Besides writing, one of her favorite jobs was a two-year stint as a crazy lunch lady. She used that job to help her write JUAN AND WILLY. If you like to laugh, and you have a slightly warped view of the world, you might like her books.
