Jeff S. Bray
Jeff lives in a small town in South Central Texas with his wife Carolyn and two of their five children. They are members of the local First Baptist Church where they have been serving for 9 years. They are Sunday School teachers for 3rd-5th grade. Jeff also works with Men’s Ministry and manages the church’s Website.
Jeff has been writing professionally since 2008. His adventure began with a personal blog called “Moments for the Heart.” That turned into small paid writing assignments. He wrote his first published piece about fatherhood for “The Lookout” magazine in 2017. That opened the door to larger writing gigs and then to regular Freelance work. In 2018, he wrote a series of Children’s books titled Elissa the Curious Snail.
He also writes adult novels in a variety of genres, but always with a strong faith element.
Jeff’s passion for writing began in the first grade. From a short story about a lost kitten to where he is today has been a long road. It has been filled with ups and downs, ins and outs, and overcoming the adversities of life. He enjoys integrating his experiences with his writing. He also has an immense passion to serve Christ and plans to use the voice given to him to glorify God. He prays his words touch hearts and lives and give people hope and the desire to pursue their own relationship with our loving Savior.

Little Reminders of Who I Was
Derrick Anders is a college student who works in a south Houston chain bookstore. He’s been struggling between his studies, work, and a recent loss in his family. Derrick has little time for friends, much less a love life, even though Breonna, the coworker with a big smile, seems to have her eyes set on him.
…And then there is Carter.
He’s been sent to do what he does best; bring two hearts together. But there is something unique about Derrick that Carter did not anticipate; something that bring back his own past and causes him to question his mission, his motives… everything.
This time, maybe Carter is the one who needs to be reminded of who he was… and who he serves.

The Five Barred Gate
This is the story of Jacob Andrews. He is faced with the decision to follow his heart and disregard what the law says about how he should live; even if it means his life.
Glatchka. Mondavka. Insinivicus.
A forgotten tribal language that Dr. Glavine discovered through his research. The good doctor had a crazy theory of what that meant—theories that, according to most of the team, were pulled from horror movies and works of fiction. This was not what happens in small cities on the east coast.
Little Reminders of Who I Am
As food critic for the popular Houston Gazette, Aaron Stephenson loves his job. But when Aaron stops in at Davies Deli, a non-descript, family-owned diner, he is smitten by the owners’ brown haired, green eyed daughter, Deborah. Aaron and Deborah feel a mutual attraction. But Deborah has a secret that could change everything.
And then there is Carter.
Bray wrote a page-turner. I was compelled to keep reading. The MC’s, Deborah (DeeDee), and Aaron had a sweet romance, but there was something she was hiding. When the reader finds out, it is heartbreaking.
(Spoiler alert) I cried.
