When I was a child I always thought I would become a fiction writer because I wrote so many stories in exercise books. What in fact happened was that for a while I wrote a lot of poems and songs, and then nothing at all for twenty-four years.
My consuming interest has always been the occult and religion, and in 2014 I joined A.E.O.N. a chaos magic group on Facebook. It was described as: "A Unique Art-Magic Collective made up of Highly Creative Individual Rebel Artists: Writers, Graphic Designers, Crafters, Pranksters & Performers. Art Transcends All Reason!"
For the sole purpose of contributing to this group, I started to write short stories and novellas. I teamed up with a chaos muse, a non-human entity, and channelled material from her so that we each wrote some of the pieces. Then I began to self-publish the resulting books.The more I learn about the professional writing world the more I am discovering that I don’t have anything in common with them. Therefore, I have now made all the books under my Candy Ray pen name free on this site.
I live on the south coast of England with my small family and I work part-time. The A.E.O.N. art group has faded from prominence now and has been succeeded by newer ones, but still:- Art Transcends All Reason!

Important update: check out The Eoss Trilogy, by my other pen name Lena Chere, here on Smashwords. Books 2 and 3, which are self-published, are now free. The main character, Eoss the Horse Goddess, came out of the A.E.O.N. project.
