Hi, I’m Ryan.
Growing up, I knew I wanted to be either a LEGO master builder or an English teacher (like Robin Williams in Dead Poets Society). Due to silly little things like money, I opted to do something completely different. During the day I’m product marketing manager working for a major telecommunications company, but on nights and weekends I write quirky poetry and speculative fiction.
Despite living in the urban jungles of Atlanta with my southern belle of a wife, our trombone playing son and our catnip-crazy cats, I’m still a North Carolinian at heart. Its coastline, and majestic mountains will always be part of me. I’m a member of the Atlanta Writers Club and enjoy attending writing conferences, sci-fi conventions, and renaissance festivals.
When I’m not writing or hanging out at Starbucks (yes, I’m that guy!), I’m arms deep in LEGO bricks, reading books from my never-ending TBR list, and drinking abnormal amounts of tea. I’ve also 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 (if there’s really such a thing as too much time). 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.
