James Ray


Born in Detroit, Michigan, we moved down south to the mountains of northwest North Carolina where I attended eighth grade and high school. After a shortened semester and a half expirament at Arizona State University, I joined the US Marine Corps where I spent the next nearly five years with an abbreviated tour in Viet Nam.

A lifelong tinkerer of poetry I finally published a collected volume of verse, Cosmos Clouds. I now spend time amusing myself writing poetry and short stories including a collection of case studies in the Annals of Sir Arthur, My Brother Who Would Be Sherlock.

Married now for over 30 years, we split our time between the Sonoran Desert of Arizona and Western Nebraska.
