HEADLINE NEWS:
I have written 28 western frontier eBooks, zillions of poems and a 854 page collection of ghost stories. But I am far from famous.


Who is RaymondCook?
As for who Raymond Cook is, well, Iím a 64 year old disabled veteran. In 1972, at the age of 18, I enlisted in the marine Corp. My plan was to retire. But life has a way of changing our destiny. In 1974 on my way back to my base a drunk driver hit me head-on going 80 and my life was forever changed. Those were my darkest days but eventually in 1983 I enrolled in college and took a creative writing class as an elective. At that point I had no interest at all in becoming a writer or author. In truth, how many people have taken a writing course in high school or college and believed one day they would write a book? I recently found out my creative writing professor passed away.
