"You are a genius!"  -  That's from my wife!   :)

  

"Searingly honest ... vigorously recounted ... astonishingly vivid  -  Absorbing ... vastly entertaining ... great good humour  -  Exuberant ... lively  -  Wise and humorous"

  

"[Ronnie's] columns are - well they're terrific, entertaining, amazing, surprising.  Yes, all those and more, but definitely surprising.  I never know what next week will bring.  The one thing I do know is that it will be a good read" 

  

"Outstanding  -  Always entertaining.  Here he is on peak form, and Ronnie's literary peak is considerably higher than Everest" 

  

"Please, please don't miss this chance to read a wonderful, emotional, heart-warming account by Ronnie Bray of a visit to his elderly mother" 

  

"This excellent column is about love, parenthood, and life, and you will feel a whole lot better for having read it" 

  

"Profoundly moving ... [a] luminescent account ...  always hugely entertaining ... his wonderfully exuberant account ... provides a valuable lesson in human behaviour ... another splendid column ... if you want to reach the end of an article with a smile on your face, read Ronnie ... " [PH] 

  

"Great!"  [JBA] 

  

"Two more wonderful stories. I am pleased and honored that you have shared them with me. The one about 'LUKE' is so very touching.  

  

Your story, 'The Nail'  [is] a beautiful illustration of what Jesus endured for our sakes, all for Love." [Rev. JB] 

  

"The Camping story was worth the wait. I smiled and chortled and laughed out loud at your descriptions of the English campers, and equally so of American campers. We Americans are as soft as the English are strange in our ideas of what camping is all about. Thank you for sharing your delightful humor and well-wrought word images of the two variations of camping life." 

  

"Engaging tales, and much the more so because of your delightful accent and masterful story telling abilities" [JBM]

  

"A wonderful [Dog] story indeed!"  

  

"I was feeling sad, so I laid on the bed with my beautiful little dog at my side and listened to your CD, "Doggie Tails."  It was wonderful. It lifted my spirit, drove out the sadness, and although that was two days ago I am still smiling.  [Shari] 

  

Thank you for another wonderful story. Your stories are  like  zucchini: I love 'em.  [Les T]

  

Ah, Ronnie, your story takes  me back [...]   Thanks for the story and the memories it brought back to me. [Jill]

  

"Very lovely ... and thanks so much for sharing it.  I could almost taste every morsel of that breakfast!"  [LJAM - After reading my story "Ye Shall Have Rest"]

  

Ronnie, I enjoyed reading your story, "Meadomsley Days".  [LBH]

  

Ronnie Bray writes movingly about the deadliest of all human enemies – loneliness [ED]

  

Ronnie,  I thought this was a wonderful piece of writing. You told the story and captured the atmosphere so well. I could have been there. ‘There are no winners in war.’ as you so well demonstrate. I ask when will man ever learn?

  

I was born in in England, (Not too far from Huddersfield) thankfully too young to remember the war but young enough to pick up the residue.

  

A great piece of writing. [Norma Jean - nkawak]

  

I have not read such a beautifully well-written piece for a long time.    How sincere; how moving and how fitting that I should read it on the eve of Anzac Day, when we, in Australia and New Zealand remember the fallen.    Thank you Ronnie Bray.  [John Powell]

  

Ronnie is a noted writer from West Yorkshire, England, who now makes his home in Mesa, Arizona, with his wife, Gay.  Ronnie is retired, and writes full-time. His delightful stories of his life growing up in England will make you both laugh and cry, and will stay in your heart forever.  [SF-F]

 

Hey Ronnie!

  

Wish I could write like you. You captured me into reading more and more due to the clever way you write! Very interesting! Enjoyed it very much. [Anna-M B]
