Not exactly clear on spelling: Gray vs. grey

Should Rain-354617_1920you write shades of gray or shades of grey? Are the aliens abducting us the Grays or the Greys?

Need an editor? Having your book, business document or academic paper proofread or edited before submitting it can prove invaluable. In an economic climate where you face heavy competition, your writing needs a second eye to give you the edge. Whether you come from a big city like Tampa, Florida, or a small town like Deadhorse, Alaska, I can provide that second eye.
