Rannah Gray is the award-winning author of Familiar Evil, the chilling true story of the international search for a television personality that exposed his dark side as a child predator. Gray was also a confidential informant in the international criminal investigation that was the basis for the book, after she was contacted by a British abuse survivor and worked with him to seek justice for victims. She is one of Louisiana’s most experienced advertising and public relations professionals, currently providing expertise and counsel to a broad base of clients.


Since the release of Familiar Evil in November 2015, Gray has spoken throughout the country for children’s advocacy groups, social workers, civic organizations and writers’ conferences. In 2017, she partnered with Dr. Jim Kitchens, founder of The Kitchens Group, to conduct a national survey that revealed the psychological deterrents for reporting child sex abuse which adults may use as a rationalization for not getting involved to protect children.


Familiar Evil has been honored with ten national and international book awards, six Gold Medals including First Place honors for Best True Crime in the Independent Publishers Awards, Best New Nonfiction in the USA Best Book Awards and Best Narrative Nonfiction in the International Book Awards.


Gray previously served as Associate Athletic Director at Louisiana State University, managing marketing, promotions, the radio and television network, and ticket operations for 20 sports teams. She also served as Undersecretary to the Louisiana Secretary of State.


Gray is a graduate of Louisiana State University with a B.A. and Master’s degree in Journalism.
