When Ray isn't writing, she is happiest spending time with her family and friends, exploring nature with her children and two rescue dogs Phoenix and Freyja, and teaching Writing For Nature workshops. A firm believer of magick, Ray can often be found stargazing under the moon with a tarot deck in one hand and a strong cuppa in the other. It is Ray's dream to one day open The Peridot Animal Sanctuary and Wildlife Reserve in England and that dream inspired Ray to close her business of fifteen years to pursue a writing career.

What makes Ray an eco-friendly author?

Ray is a member of the Climate Fiction Writers League, her books are printed on recycled paper where possible and she plants 1 tree per book sale via Ecologi. Ray worked closely with the Society of Authors Sustainability Working Group, to create the Tree to Me campaign, encouraging authors to advocate for sustainable book printing within the industry.
