Ray McClendon is a poet theologian who is very grateful to God for the gracious gift of verse and thirty years of teaching ministry that has provided a few insights along the way. Ray’s desire is to faithfully retell Biblical stories and explore their principles with lovely art and clever rhyme in a way that will entertain, as well as instruct the mind, touch the heart, and fire the imagination.
In addition to writing children’s books, Ray still serves as an outreach minister for his church and a police/fire chaplain for his community in Petaluma, California. He has been married to Linda, his high school sweetheart, for forty years. They have four children and three grandchildren and consider their close, loving family to be their greatest achievement.
