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 created the YA/MG Trans and Nonbinary Voices Masterlist, a database that tracks all books in those age categories written by trans authors about trans characters.

They are a contributor to Take The Mic: Fictional Stories of Everyday Resistance (Arthur A. Levine/Scholastic Books). Their first young adult novel, Between Perfect and Real, will be published by Amulet Books in April 2021, with a second standalone novel to follow.

When they’re not writing, they can be found gardening, making art in other mediums, or hiking their beloved Pacific Northwest.

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.
