More About the Author
Ray Sullivan (1957 - ) was born in Flint, north Wales. Just before his 21st birthday he joined the Royal Air Force as an airframe mechanic, intially on a three year term which stretched to twenty four years, that saw Ray posted around the UK, Cyprus, Germany and the Falkland Islands working on various aircraft types ranging from the venerable Hawker Hunter to the battlefield horse, the Chinook.
He spent the second half of his military career in the technical training environment, as an instructor, training manager and finally as a project engineer on innovative engineering projects. It was during this period that Ray started to write - initially producing a 2 hour comedy script based on the X Files TV series and a series of short stories. Some of these stories were later revisited and morphed onto full-blown novels, and although the TV script never saw the light of day it proved a useful training ground in writing. In all of Ray's work he has drawn heavily on his military experiences and genreally includes a serving or ex serving character to drive his plots foreward.
Since leaving the RAF Ray has worked in various project roles and has experienced extended periods away from home, periods that provided the time and opportunity to develop his writing style, ultimately producing four full novels to date plus a number of novels that are work in progress.
His first full novel, Parallel Lives, based on a short story written in 2000, was completed in 2004 and is now self published in Kindle format. Ray's second novel, The Journeymen, grew out of a short story written in 2002 and completed as an unrecognisably related novel in 2005. It was published in Kindle format in 2011. The third novel, Skin, was completed in 2007 and has just been published in Kindle format. Ray has recently published his fourth novel, DLF, in Kindle format.
Ray is currently working on a couple of thriller/adventure novels plus a parody of the Dan Brown writing style that many authors, himself included, adopt to some degree. He is aiming to publish this parody by the summer of 2011.
Ray does not advise on slimming. The book listed on Amazon in his name is not one of his books.
