Hi, I’m Ryan.
I’m always in search of words. I never set out to be a writer but after experiencing my first spark of poetic inspiration, it just happened. In addition to crafting quirky poetry, I also write speculative fiction but as I like to tell my friends and family, it’s mostly just an excuse to go office supply shopping and hang out at Starbucks on the weekend.
I work for a major telecommunications company for a living and live in the peach state with my southern belle of a wife, our trombone playing son and our crazy cats. In my off hours, I’m often found arms deep in LEGO bricks, reading books and drinking abnormal amounts of tea.
Going to writing conferences, sci-fi conventions and renaissance festivals are my thing. I’ve been known to conduct invisible orchestras while listening to music, wield lightsabers when the lights go out and perhaps spend far too much time at the beach. Seriously though, who can ever spend too much time at a beach? I’m a bit of an introvert and can be a little shy sometimes but once I get to know someone, I’m pretty much an open book.
Want to know more? Just ask.
