Ray Simmons was born and raised in Bayou La Batre, Alabama. He attended and graduated from Alba High School and those High School Days were some of the best of his life. He has been a Deep Sea Diver, a soldier, a teacher, and most of all a traveler and a student of life. Now he wants to try his hand at writing and he welcomes all comments, help, and suggestions any friends and fans might have. He remains convinced that friendship, loyalty, and hard work make life fun, interesting, and meaningful. This whole arena of e publishing is new and exciting to him and he looks forward to working in it and eventually mastering it.
