Ray Cattie is a native of Delaware County, Pennsylvania, where he grew up and lived three out of the four seasons of the year, having taught both at the high school and the college levels. Since 2004, his summers have been spent in the Kingdom of Summer, in a small village outside of Caerleon in the year 594, where he weaves his stories in the shade of an ancient black oak and smiles at the knights and ladies as they make their way to and from court. Ray is the author of seven novels, four of which are from the "Celtic Tales" series, one of which is a suspense thriller, one of which is a collection of horror shorts, and one is a chapbook of American poetry. He would like to thank everyone, here and gone, who helped him both actively and passively in the creation of his work.
Ard Righ: A Celtic Tale- Book I
Whosoever takes the sword Caladfwlch from the Stone is the true born High King of Briton. With those words, Myrddin, incomparable counselor to kings, has fulfilled his vow to Ambrosius, the last Emperor of the West: the great sword Caladfwlch of the Hard Lightening would next be in the hands of the King of the Summerlands. Myrddin had prophesied a child born of a dark sin, a child who would grow into manhood in the fosterage of a noble family, a child who would be forged into the King of the Summerlands: Arthur. ARD RIGH chronicles the early life of Arthur, the burgeoning King of Summer, following the legendary character from his much-anticipated birth, through his heroic ascension to the Sovereignty of Briton, culminating in his defense of Sovereignty itself against the treasonous renegade Lot. Ray Cattie is on the "...list of what we consider to be the most important Arthurian fiction writers from the start of the twentieth century onwards." Pendragon Historical Society
