Charles Ray: Author, Ambassador, Advocate
Until You Walk the Path, You Don’t Know Where it Goes will be hosting author Ambassador Charles Ray on August 1 at 5 pm eastern.
Charles Ray was bitten by the writing bug in his teens when he won a short story contest sponsored by a national Sunday school magazine. As a young soldier in Germany in the early 60s, he frequently contributed poetry to the Stars and Stripes newspaper.
From the late 1960s through the early 80s Ray did magazine and newspaper writing, photography and cartooning, and was editorial cartoonist for the Spring Lake (NC) News. He has done magazine cover art and photography and cartoons for publications such as Ebony, Essence, and Asia Magazine. Ray has written on everything from cultural history to travel to theatrical reviews.
His first book length work was a leadership book, “Things I Learned from My Grandmother About Leadership and Life,” published in 2008. This was followed in 2009 by “Taking Charge: Effective Leadership for the Twenty-first Century.” In 2009, he published an e-novel, “Color Me Dead,” a mystery featuring DC-based private investigator, Al Pennyback. He has since published “Deadline” and “Memorial to the Dead,” in the Al Pennyback series. These books are at Lebrary.com.
His recent book, “Angel on His Shoulder,” available at amazon.com in paperback and lebrary.com as an e-book, is a fantasy/humor book about Winston Nesbitt, a 40-year-old loser whose grandmother comes back to life as a twelve-inch tall impish spirit who complicates his boring life.
