About Me

Ray Stoeve is a queer & nonbinary writer. They received a 2016-2017 Made at Hugo House Fellowship for their young adult fiction. They attended the inaugural Tin House YA Workshop in 2019 and the 2020 Tin House Summer Workshop for adult fiction.

They are a contributor to Take The Mic: Fictional Stories of Everyday Resistance, an anthology out now from Arthur A. Levine/Scholastic Books. Their first young adult novel, Between Perfect and Real, will be published by Amulet Books in Spring 2021, with a second standalone novel to follow. When they’re not writing, they can be found working with youth, on stage in drag, or hiking their beloved Pacific Northwest. They live in a community house in Seattle with their partner and chosen family, where they tend to an ever-expanding garden.

They are represented by the wonderful Lauren Abramo at Dystel, Goderich & Bourret. And, because they know you’re wondering: their last name is pronounced STO-vee.
