Jorge Loriga Torrenova, better known as Ray Loriga (born March 5, 1967), is a Spanish author, screenwriter, and director[1] (born Madrid, 1967). His first novel Lo Peor de todo (English: The Worst Thing of All), was published in 1992, and was followed by Héroes in 1993.

Caídos del Cielo (La pistola de mi hermano) (English: My Brother's Gun) is the first of his novels to be published in English, and he directed a film based on this book in 1997. His second novel to be published in English is Tokio ya no nos quiere (English: Tokyo Doesn't Love Us Anymore).[2]

Loriga married Spanish-Danish singer-songwriter Christina Rosenvinge in 1989.

In April 2017, Loriga was awarded the Alfaguara Prize for his novel Rendición (Rendition). It is one of the richest Spanish-language literary prizes.[3]
