About Ray's Stories

I have been writing stories since I was able to hold a pencil. I started with short stories about me and my friends' adventures, then moved into fiction and fantasy settings as I grew older. It wasn't long before I was using my first computer to create stories based on real events that diverged into the fictional and the fantastic.
As I entered my teens I began writing stories involving a sexual content. As I was growing up in the eighties, my sexuality was deeply hidden and was only allowed out in my secret stories. 
I kept these secret stories hidden in my blue footlocker for decades, until I shared a few with some very close friends as a young adult. They were very well received, but put away again. It wasn't until a very few years ago that I started a website and began to share those old stories along with a few selected new ones.
I was encouraged to share more, and to develop and finish a story based on my real life as a closeted gay teen growing up in the suburbs of Chicago. The Circulatim Trilogy became a multi-year labor of love and self-realization. It was finally self-published and was very well reviewed. 
I've decided to begin this Patreon effort to offset the costs of the increasingly popular website Ray's Stories as well as to hopefully create a bit of income to offset the costs of the time I spend writing instead of working - not to mention to give you, the reader, a way to support my efforts.
