Ray is a committed advocate, through Journey Home, for men who were abused as children.
He had little formal education and is very determined that his story be told as a warning to anyone who works or lives with victims.
He would not allow his lack of education to get in the way of his story being told. So, here it is, written with the help of Kate Shayler.
They both hope that the book will educate, illuminate and be an incentive for change in our society.
Would you know if your child was being groomed by a paedophile?
This is a true story. Born into poverty and violence Ray is forced to beg for food on the streets of inner Sydney. The dark world his social worker takes him into, Sydney, Wollongong and Hunter Valley paedophile rings, is a trap for a boy without a proper home or schooling.
A Beautiful Boy is co-written with fellow IndieMosh author Kate Shayler (Burnished: Burnside Life Stories).
