Humanity left Earth a long time ago. They had treated their home planet poorly, and the deteriorating environment forced them to leave. They traveled 189 light years to a faraway world and named it Horizon, respecting the new lives they intended to build. Fortunately, they learned their lessons and treated their new world much better. After over 1,000 years away from Earth, they still revered her and taught their children her beauty. They knew that someday they would return, and they hoped Earth had healed and she would welcome them back. They finally developed faster than light travel and the first place they wanted to visit was the home planet of the human race. When a small crew made the trip, they found that Earth was healed and healthy, but they also found changes that surprised them. When they returned to Horizon, they had more questions than when they left.

Ray was born in New Hampshire, received his Bachelors of Science in Aeronautical Engineering from Arizona State University. Now retired from an influential, multi-decade career in aerospace,
Bringing a new voice to science fiction writing, Ray realized there was a niche that was calling him as he began to write deeper characters, create more sophisticated stories and realistic situations for Sci-Fi fans to relate to.
Initially attracted to heroic characters with powerful weapons taking on hundreds of aliens, Ray began his literary career with a desire to extrapolate Sci-Fi stories with a touch of everyday reality that most of us experience in work and our everyday lives.
His literary work is thoughtfully enriched by his decade long experience in the US Air Force where he flew C-130s on missions to 27 countries, and T-38s while training the best pilots in the world, as well as the first female US Air Force pilots.
During his 28 years at Northrup Grumman, Ray worked on some of the most top-secret military aircraft projects in the world including the F-23, F-35, B-2, Global Hawk and many more that can’t be named.
He is grateful to his wife, Charlene and his two daughters, Christine and Robynn for their support on this new journey.
