More About the Author

Ray Rhamey was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. Leaving graduate school (psychology) at the University of Texas/Austin for the working world, he toiled in advertising/marketing communications for several decades, creating for national advertising clients and universities. Then he spent a few years working on scriptwriting in Hollywood. Then he took up editing and the writing of his blog on the craft of storytelling, "Flogging the Quill" (floggingthequill.com).

Now living in the Pacific Northwest and focused full-time on book editing and design (crrreative.com) plus writing (rayrhamey.com), Ray has published five books--nonfiction on writing, "Flogging the Quill, Crafting a Novel that Sells," and four novels: "The Summer Boy, a novel of Texas;" "We the Enemy," a speculative political thriller; "Finding Magic," contemporary fantasy; and "The Vampire Kitty-cat Chronicles," a humorous spoof of the vampire myth as told by a cat.

Ray has always been drawn to creative work, starting with a longtime desire to be a cartoonist and artist. He has done some cartooning, and now applies his visual talents to book cover and interior design, although he sees a graphic novel in his future. He loves mentoring other writers and does this by presenting workshops at writers' conferences.

Format: Paperback
First of all We the Enemy is an entertaining conflicted hero, action novel. On that level it is similar to many Grisham, Balducci or other stories, an entertaining, compelling read. If it were only that it would be one of many books that allow us a few hours in a world unlike our own that we visit to sample different lives or just escape our own.

However, there is much more going on here. Into into his dark view of what our society could look like not long from now the author weaves ideas about re-interpreted constitutional rights that make it difficult for these rights to be ignored, twisted or used for ill. It is these ideas that make this book stand out. Not just another action story but a good story with compelling notions that stick in the mind. These ideas seem so reasonable (and yet not impossibly Utopian) that they keep coming back, teasing you to make you wonder why they couldn't be tried.

It's a good story full of interesting characters with some of the most interesting ideas of justice around. I recommend it.

Format: Paperback
We The Enemy is an unusual novel, both an action-packed thriller and a rational dissection of our legal system. Welcome to the near future, where Secret Service agent-turned-mercenary Jake Black has agreed to make life tough for a presidential candidate with Utopian leanings. Though numbed by a mysterious loss, Black finds himself warming to the politics of his victim as well as to Jewel, a single mom on the run from the lawless jungle her world has become.

Learn about the defensive weapons, nap, tangle, and whack. Experience the horrific brutality of The Keep--the place outside civil society where hardened criminals are disposed of and the only rule is might makes right. Consider the possibilities of the Alliance and its Promise. Watch the forces in the story converge for the final showdown. Rhamey pulls no punches. There are innocent victims here as in real life. This is a fast-paced yet thought-provoking book, muscular in style and ingenious in worldview.

Format: Paperback
It's a rare book that stretches the mind and enlarges the heart - this novel presents us with characters to grow attached to, novel ideas to wrap one's mind around and a challenge to examine one's own worldview. In a society frighteningly similar to our own, deeply damaged characters grapple with the concepts of justice and personal rights, trust and prejudice. Reflected in their journeys is humanity's surprising and remarkable capacity for both harmful and benevolent acts. We the Enemy is one of those books you'll find yourself staying up way too late to read just the next chapter... and still be thinking about for a good time to come.

Format: Paperback
You are drawn into a dark though plausible near-future with a flawed, world-weary protagonist. Yet there is a thread of hope woven, which grows as you follow him on his journey. Good story, interesting characters who don't always do what you expect them to, some very good "food-for-thought" views on how to build a liveable 21st century American society. Enjoyed it thoroughly once, still thinking about it. That's a good book!
