Ray Carole could be the real-life Jack Reacher in Author guise. A former SAS Sergeant drifting through life with no fixed abode, car, bike, girlfriend or any real belongings of value - except a few Moleskine's, one Macbook-Pro and a desire to pen his thrillers and season series scripts.
He has raced 400-miles to the North Pole, walked 715-miles solo to the South that inspired The Clinic while creating several Start-Ups. Any evidence of this man's 10-year SAS past is rotten away in a damp warehouse. As his port collection matures, the medals gather rust and his photo's fade - just like his memories that he has still managed to transport into his debut novel.
Ray's current vendetta in life isn't terrorists, ex-girlfriends or parking patrol officers, but unfinished business in the coldest place on planet earth. In Nov 2021 he plans to be the first person to ever walk 1600-miles solo across Antarctica with no support in 90-days, as he continues to fear normality and write his sequel 'The Trace.'
Ray lives in Poole apparently and has been seen out running and pumping iron again. There was one confirmed sighting of him playing golf, but we don't talk about that. Or the fact he hates being in his 40's, dances like his dad and has a BMW 1 series with 130,000 miles on the clock.
