My life has always been formed by the magic of words and stories. I feel drawn to pen and paper, there are whole worlds pulsing through my veins, mystical creatures live in my dreams and lovestories fill the open void of a rainy afternoon.

I am an aspiring novel author. My genres are memoir, fantasy, sci-fi and contemporary fiction. Under my pseudonym A.J. Ray I am also dipping my toes into the romance genre.

My debut book, The Anatomy of Waves, is a poetry collection and a love letter to all the versions of myself that I never was and to my home made of waves and lava. It is the first book in the Island Elements Series.

My second book, Welcome Home Dear Soul, is a poetic encounter with death.

My third book is a sequel to The Anatomy of Waves and the second book in the Island Elements Series. The Eloquence of Hurricanes is a poetry collection about resilience, climate change, heartbreak and hope.
