About Me and My Poetry

RAY PALLA — BIOGRAPHY / Born: 11/18/1953 in Williamson County, Taylor, Texas. He was fifteen years old when Ray Palla got his first paying job as a writer, editing and reporting news for a small daytime AM radio station in Central Texas. By the time Ray was a high school junior he had graduated to be a morning show news producer for the top station in Austin. From that point Ray progressed professionally to become afternoon news anchor at Houston’s number one KIKK. Over a thirty year career Ray interviewed astronauts who walked on the moon like Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin and the late Neil A. Armstrong, U.S. Senators like J. J. (Jake) Pickle, Lieutenant Governors, Texas Governors Dolph Briscoe & Mark White, and a host of other influential notables including: musicians, actors, comedians, sports legends, and every day people. Keeping an eye on the writing, Ray not only broke world news stories to the Associated Press, but he also boasts awards for several national advertising campaign jingles for customers that include Ford, Purina, and Exxon. Ray has even received an award as an international poetry contestant. As a hobby in 1988 Ray bought a used IBM PC Junior and a book on how to write software programs with a now antiquated product called Lotus 1-2-3. His first project took six months to learn and complete, but it earned him twenty thousand dollars. Since that time Ray has learned multiple computer languages and only recently retired from a successful software writing and development career. Ray says, “Retirement gives me the freedom to take my time to enjoy the art of story-telling. I’m having fun now.” Today Ray travels the U.S. in his RV and writes about what he sees, mixing a great deal of truth with a vivid imagination. Ray now has two five star fiction novels. SIMPLE TRIPLE STANDARD and KRILL AMERICA are available on-line and from great bookstores everywhere. SIMPLE TRIPLE STANDARD is Historical Fiction gnawing the gut of local radio news reporter Bryant L Herman in a close-knit community rife with extrapolated double standards that garner deadly impact. KRILL AMERICA is an aged seaman’s action-suspense-thriller and a vessel tasked to “feed the world” while sequestered in the most treacherous place on earth. Broken and set adrift in a sea of chaos mingled with relentless tension fed by self-doubt the ship’s crew triumphs in a stunning conclusion.

It could mean a world o' good.
It's important if we could, all stand side-to-side and re-unite.
It might change the day-to-day, in almost every way,

When you came to me, somehow life started.
Across a lonely sea, you sailed to rescue me.
No wind's too much to change a course we've charted,
