Raw-Spoon-w-monster-and-birdMy Writing: But in my free time I write and illustrate books and blogs. I also write for Focus on The Family’s Boundless.org (young adults blog) thought I personally am not ideologically constrained to all of their views. I also write for FaithHappenings.org. I write fiction under my pen name Raw Spoon, and non-fiction under my real name Ross Boone. Only my non-fiction is overtly spiritual, while the fiction has spiritual themes.
