The Ghosts Behind Him book cover The Ghosts behind Him is Doris's story of her family coming to terms with schizophrenia which affects more than 40,000 people in British Columbia as well as their families.
Not only does the book detail the emotional roller-coaster rides of the family but it also gives us glimpses into the private world of the schizophrenic and the voices he can't avoid and which drive him to commit an unbelieveably violent act.

The Boy on the Road book cover The Boy On The Road and Other Stories by Doris Ray, winner of the BC 2000 Book Award for The Ghosts Behind Him, is a celebration of daily living in northern BC. This collection of short stories illustrates the author's talent for revealing the human condition. Her descriptions take the reader directly into scenarios ranging from science fiction anomalies and deadbeat bar rooms to confrontations with life and death.The characterizations vividly portray northerners and I was delighted with the combination of wit, earthiness and pathos reflected in her stories.
