"Ray´s Day"

Ray´s Day is unarguably the most difficult story I have ever written in my life. Truth be told, it will be the most difficult story I will ever write for the rest of my life.

For those who will read this book, you will discover that I am not just exploring a deep dark fantasy world of what ifs, what was, and what have-nots.

Ultimately, the purpose of "RAY´S DAY" is to not only heal from a demon thats terrorized my mind for my entire life, but "RAY´S DAY" is also motivated to heal all sex abuse survivors to confront this very demon... through the art of writing.

— Marlon Crump

Ray´s Day

This demon plagued his mind with so many ugly images of that event, that Crump had to bury it to literally avoid losing his mind. This demon is called R-A-P-E.

In recent years, he´s decided to combat his inner turmoil through his skill of writing. It is with this motivation is where Crump decided to write "RAY´S DAY" where he explores the possibilty of what the fate would be of the perpretator of this heinous crime, from a fictional perspective.
