Ray Stoeve is a queer & trans writer from Seattle, Washington. They received a 2016-2017 Made at Hugo House Fellowship for their young adult fiction, and are on a personal mission to include at least one trans character in every book they write.

When they’re not writing heartfelt queer stories, they can be found hiking their beloved Pacific Northwest or on stage in drag. 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 novel, Between Perfect and Real, will be published by Amulet Books in Spring 2021, with a second standalone novel to follow.

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.
