About the Author
Raymond James Francis is an RMN nurse and is proud to be part of the NHS. He is a part-time puppeteer and is trying to master the art of making that perfect cup of tea. Raymond is also an up and coming author (at least that’s what he’s been told). He can be found living in the UK with his beautiful wife and son. In school, Raymond was told by his English teacher that he would never become an author and should give up the dream. That was until another English teacher read one of his tales and felt that his dream of becoming an author can happen and helped support Raymond’s short tale “Morgan eye”. “The unlucky leprechaun and other strange and wonderful tales” is Raymond James Francis first published book.
