About Robin Ray

Robin was born in Trinidad & Tobago and emigrated to the U.S. when he was 12. Always an avid reader, he soaked in many a title in his youth which he followed up by studying English at Iowa State University. Primarily a nurse throughout his lifetime, he always paused to focus on two passions - music and writing. His music endeavors include playing in rock bands, recording albums and working as a recording engineer in a studio he co-owned in NY city. Finally taking a break from music, he re-focused on his other love, writing. Thus far he's written two novels, five novellas, five screenplays, and numerous short stories. With a work of non-fiction also under his belt, his genres run the gamut from mystery to horror, crime to romance, science fiction to historical fiction. Having lived a journeyman-type of life, Robin has been in the company of poor folks and millionaires, spiritual leaders and gangbangers, city dwellers and rural farmers, the ultra-religious and free thinkers. Each situation he has experienced has helped shape and infuse his work with their colors, some of it vibrant, others quite devastating. Besides working as a nurse and recording engineer, he's also driven a taxi, worked the grill and maintenance at several fast food restaurants, worked at an animal shelter, overnight stocked at a retail giant, was a camp counselor and worked with developmentally disabled adults at a long-term psychiatric center.
