A new writer with a passion for urban noir fiction and with leanings towards sci-fi and the paranormal who leads a mysterious life, skulking in out of the way places to uncover stories that are a little off-centre, exploring not just the dark side but the many facets of the human experience - with much humour in places.
Down To Zero is the first in a series, set in London in 2018 and beyond, featuring seasoned murder-investigators Mallory Vine and Bob Dario as they struggle to bring down two serial-killers and start to realise that the paranormal is at work, despite all arguments to the contrary. The Big Crunch is a one-off novel, fast-paced and grungy, set in Leeds at the beginning of the 21st century when you could still smoke in the pubs, when Leeds United were slipping down the league tables and IT was here to stay. Things could only get better - or could they? Other short stories have different time-frames - one is a tale of medieval misdeeds set against a backcloth of social and political upheaval as a motley crew of stalwarts attempt to enjoy their lives - and survive. Due for publication with a couple of shorter works, one a ghost-story in the near-ish future.
The writings of Medeas Wray are hard to pin down. Seems the category 'Mash-Up' was tailor-made for them. If you like the work of Iain Banks, Richard Condon, George MacDonald Fraser, William Gibson (all of them, sadly dead) - you may like Medeas Wray's.
The author is currently working on the second (and possibly third) in a series following on from Down To Zero. Still learning, still travelling, still breathing - and struggling to survive on a planet no bigger than a speck of dandruff in universal terms.
