Down, near Belfast, Northern Ireland, has been a professional writer for over twenty years, originally writing a regular series – plus other articles, reviews and reports – for several UK technical magazines.
From 1990-96 he edited and published the Irish magazine, 'Bread' – releasing his first book, ‘Ireland – now the good news!’ from this in 1995; co-edited by his wife, well-known fiction author Gerry McCullough. His articles have also been published in the Irish Times, Dublin, and the Presbyterian Herald, Belfast.
In 1993 he hosted a radio show, 'In tha Name a' Gawd!' on 96.7 BCR, in Belfast, which later developed into his current satellite radio show of music, news and faith-based interviews – broadcasting around the world on several satellite networks. From 1996, for seven years, he and Gerry led a cell-based Christian fellowship in the Belfast area.
Since then he’s been involved in media of all kinds – from web design to podcasting, satellite and internet radio, plus documentary TV production – producing an album of Celtic & Hebrew worship music, 'Into Jerusalem,' in 2005 and a Celtic pop-folk album, 'Different,' in 2008.
Raymond has researched the subjects in 'The Whore and her Mother' for about forty years, off and on, but the events of 9/11 brought a new focus to his research and a real sense of increasing urgency encouraged him to complete the book in just four months! He felt the subject was too interesting and dramatic to simply be confined to the fairly narrow, evangelical Christian world.
Since 2008, Raymond has produced and hosted ‘Celtic Roots Radio’ – an iTunes podcast and web station (on Live365) – with around 14,000 downloads per month in well over 100 countries. He also produces and hosts the ‘In tha Name a’ Gawd!’ series and Fresh Bread – broadcasting each week on several satellite radio networks heard in most countries of the world. His 'Kingdom Come Trust' website has hundreds of enthusiastic emails from satellite radio listeners in US, Canada, Australia and the Caribbean.
Raymond is currently writing a follow-up to 'The Whore and her Mother' entitled, ‘What Kind of People’ – expanding the contents of his last chapter on how we should respond to these prophecies soon being fulfilled. He is recording a new Fresh Bread series based on the book is planning shortly to publish the 'craic' from his Celtic Roots Radio shows as, 'A Wee Bit a' Craic,' and is working on a TV documentary, filmed mainly in Canada, entitled, 'Broken Treaties.'
