Ohio Author Spotlight: Ray Wenck

First of all, Ray Wenck is a complicated guy. An active member of Buckeye Crime Writers for several years (going back to the days when we were Sisters In Crime of Columbus Ohio, a.k.a., SICCO), Ray truly defines the term ‘Renaissance man;’ former Toledo native, played baseball for the University of Toledo, then worked as an elementary school teacher during the day while running DeSimone’s Italian restaurant at night, to eventually become a lead cook for Hollywood Casinos and kitchen manager for the Toledo Mud Hens minor league baseball team. And what else? He plays the harmonica!

In addition, Ray is the author of thirty-six novels, including the post-apocalyptic Random Survival series, the Danny Roth mystery/suspense series, a zombie series, and a time travel series co-authored with Jason Nugent.

His latest releases are mysteries that include the soon-to-be-released, A Second Chance at Death. He has also begun releasing his titles as audiobooks, and has written the Pick-A-Path series where you can choose your own ending. Ray is both traditionally published and self-published, and is a frequent speaker and seller at book tours and conventions around the country. But mostly, Ray is a doer:  that rare individual who just puts his head down and figures it out. He’s also that guy you want to sit next to at the restaurant after a BCW presentation, because if you’ve got writing questions, he’s got answers. And on the rare occasions he doesn’t, he’s just fun to hang with.
