Raymond Bayly was born in suburban Maryland, as a teenager he spent many hours reading books from the likes of Dean R. Koontz, Stephen King, J. R. R. Tolkien and Robert Ludlum, spending his early years feeding his love of horror and science fiction. At the age of 16, he moved to the Boston area and began writing short stories and playing guitar in a few local bands. He joined the army and served his tour, upon returning home to a new wife and daughter with the pressures of a new child and a new marriage he hung up his pen and for many years concentrated on raising his children and building a career in computers.

After moving to South Carolina, he took up writing again, starting with short stories and soon publishing his first full-length novel Revenant.

Today Raymond still lives in South Carolina where he enjoys spending time with his five children or working on his turn of the century Victorian home. When he is not doing that you can find him riding his Harley Davidson through the mountains of Asheville NC or answering fire calls.

His passions include writing, playing guitar, flying and embarrassing his children.

Smashwords Interview

How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Mostly I hear about them on twitter, or if there is a new book to a series I read, Ill grab that. I also tend to browse amazon or barnes and noble to see if there is anything that catches my eye. I love reading, to the point where if I am in the car I will listen to audio books and if I am at home I will pick up a book and read it. It is not unheard of for me to be reading two or three books at a time and writing a novel.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes I do, well the first professional story that is, and when I say professional I mean one that I let others read. It was my first year in high school and for an english project I wrote a story called "Mutant in the research center" it won county wide award as well. I was very proud of it.
