Until Ray: Book 1 of the Until Ray trilogy


He’s trying to find himself.

She’s looking for love.

They meet on a blind date.

Two people in the same city but worlds apart.



Meet Ray Saint. He lives in northwest Detroit in a four-family flat with his mother. When he’s not at home, Ray’s either at the mall selling women’s shoes or in the club. In both places, he's focused on one thing—picking up women. Dissatisfied, dysfunctional, and leagues behind his peers, Ray's ready for a change but isn’t sure how to make it happen.


Meet Sarita Deering. At twenty-four, she has an MBA, is a CPA, and works in upper-level management at GM. But all that success comes at a cost: she’s lonely and craves the one thing she’s never had—attention from men. Until now. Dr. Graham Emerson wants to marry Sarita, and her parents expect her to, but Sarita isn’t convinced he’s the one for her. On a blind date, she meets Ray Saint and is immediately drawn in by his good looks and sense of humor. But his reputation for being a ladies’ man raises several red flags. Ray swears he’s changed. Is giving up a sure thing for a maybe worth the risk?

Set in the mid-eighties, Until Ray explores life and love through the lenses of colorism, classism, and family dysfunction.

                                                        He' not dead.

Marriage isn’t always forever—but what about love? 

Sarita Saint’s first wedding anniversary is spent searching for her husband, Ray. While their marriage may not be picture-perfect, Sarita is certain Ray would never leave her. She fears foul play. But the truth is much more mundane, yet devastating. He left, without a word, without an explanation.


Twenty-seven years later, Ray is still struggling with guilt. Leaving Sarita was his biggest mistake—and he soon learns exactly how big.

Despair takes him across the country, searching not only for his one true love, but also for himself—to tackle the personal demons he’s never faced, and to correct decades-old mistakes. What he discovers will have him question everything he thought he knew about Sarita.

He left me.

I moved on.

He wants me back.

Does love have an expiration date?


Meet the new Sarita Saint. Everyone changes in three decades, but Sarita’s not at all the same woman that her husband of only one year abandoned. Ray’s back and eager to start over with Sarita, however, her transformation is long since complete.

But one thing hasn’t changed: her need for closure about their brief, failed marriage. Ray Saint is the only person who can give that to her.

After Ray, the third book of the Until Ray trilogy, is told from the perspectives of Sarita Saint, the jilted wife; Raymond Saint, the self-professed changed man; and Boone Sawyer, Ray’s former best friend. Intertwined in this thought-provoking story that embraces middle age, the three explore lost opportunities and uncover layers of deceit as they question what love means.
