Ray Ring

Steve Sweeney

Ray Ring, author of the new novel titled "Montana Blues," is the author of three previous novels — "Arizona Kiss" (Little, Brown and Company 1991), "Peregrine Dream" (St. Martin’s Press 1989) and "Telluride Smile" (Dodd, Mead & Company 1988). His journalism has appeared in many publications, including High Country News, Outside magazine, The Arizona Daily Star and The New York Times. He’s won twelve national journalism awards, including an Investigative Reporters & Editors scroll for going undercover, posing as a convicted murderer in a max-security prison, where he got roughed up by a White Supremacist prison gang. He and his longtime wife, Linda Platts, lived in Tucson for 15 years, then Montana for 20 years, and now they're notching up their eighth year back in Tucson, where they enjoy glimpses of bobcats in the yard or on the roof.
