Born and raised primarily in Illinois, Slate R. Raven started his writing career after attempting several other means of artistic expression. However, after a debilitating injury to his spine, Slate was left with the option of watching daytime television or finding something that proved to be more productive. So with that, Slate chose writing as a means of purging the turbulent emotions that coursed through his veins over being a prisoner of one's own body. The first of many novels emerged while sitting under a Laptop computer, a generous gift from his father. To pass the time during the long months of surgery and physical therapy Slate continued to write. New to the publishing world, a contract from a crooked publisher and an offer of a big check cost him over 15 years of litigation. After that, Slate pulled all his former books, and started over as an independent author.
Doctors had embedded a morphine pump in Slate’s abdomen, allowing a drop of morphine to hit the nerve directly once per hour. This allows Slate a great deal more movement and less pain than prior to the injury; as an added bonus since the amount of the morphine is so slight since delivered directly to the source, Slate isn’t forced to walk through life in a perpetual fog that oral painkillers bring about. Life has started to become a whole lot better!
Stay tuned for updates as many more books will be pouring out of his severely twisted mind!
