Ray Petrolino is the author of the award-winning screenplay A Leap into Darkness and the novel of the same name.

He lives in North Carolina with his wife and family and their dog Jake (not just any dog, but a talking bichon with an unfulfilled set of demands).

When Ray is not writing, he's listening to his dog (and sometimes his wife); or he can be found working on film sets, playing drums at his house, or playing drums at someone else's house.

P.S. The Ray and Jake page is more interesting...
