those that don't know me my name is Ray. I'm
an amateur author and have written lots of
novels, short stories, ebooks, interactive
stories, game guides and web-stories over the
years. I'm not claiming to have a
particularly interesting life and many of
these entries may appear rather mundane but I'm
sure if you scroll through there may be
something that catches your eye. You may also
like to know what makes an author tick, so to
many years I've used the internet I've posted
a vast amount of blog entries many of which
are subject specific while others were simply
general thoughts that I had the urge to jot
down. MySpace, Blogger and Utherverse were
the main blog services that I used but alas
over the years these have declined in
popularity other than Blogger which is still
going strong. In fact MySpace simply removed
everyone's blogs when it changed from a
social network to a music promotion site.
Luckily I'm in the habit of backing
everything up. The following is essentially
an archive of my blog entries which includes
latest blog entires as well as thoughs dating
I do have a tendency to moan about lots of
things, especially in the early entries, so
there may be some adult language as well as
adult content. There may be a few spelling
mistakes and typos too. The entries are in
date order, to list by category click
