Episode #73: Ray Star – Multi-award-winning fantasy fiction author and eco-activist

Ray Star is a young adult fantasy fiction author from Essex with a passion for animal rights, eco-living and strong cups of tea. She balances her writing with parenting, exploring, stargazing and teaching #WritingForNature workshops as a member of the Climate Fiction Writers League.

Ahead of the release of her second novel, Dominion, she talks to Viva!’s head of investigations, Lex Rigby, about her vegan journey, shifting from public relations to fiction writing and climate/animal rights activism.

Following the interview, Faye and Lex discuss the various paths to veganism and activism, reading and what books they enjoyed when they were young.
