Hello, my name's Raye. I'm from a middle-of-nowhere town in Missouri, just a little bit off the beaten path of paved city roads. I'm a pretty quiet kind of gal, always reading and writing something. Once a month during the year, I shed my "Poet" title that many of my friends have given me and pick up the "Author" title instead. I've been doing Nano since 2005 although it wasn't until 2009 that I completely dedicated myself to sitting down in front of a computer and typing out 50,000 words.
