I have pursued creative writing for many years, even with a demanding day job in IT. Spurred by writing classes in a local college along with correspondence courses and reading, I got into writing fiction, essays, blogging, and doing book reviews.
In 2021, I self-published a post-apocalyptic science fiction novel entitled: "Power of the Ancients" (available on Amazon). I am a “Vine Reviewer” on Amazon with over two thousand Helpful votes (posting book reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, and my own website). I am active in the South Carolina Writers Association as a Chapter Lead (Columbia III) and maintain a related newsletter ("Chapter Three").
You can find more info on my activities on my website: rayviews.blog. My themes are speculative in the spirit of JRR Tolkien and HG Wells, political in the spirit of Orwell and Huxley, and inspirational in the spirit of Cheryl Strayed and Paulo Coelho.
I prefer to work by task with definite deliverables. I will perform most any creative writing job as long as the work is not open-ended. Book reviewing and fiction-writing are my strong points. Please review my portfolio.
