Ryan writes fantasy and myth retellings
Most recently, Ryan published Beneath the Trees, a novella about a hidden world decaying at its roots. He also published seven short stories in serial on this site. What if many of the heroes of our myths and folklore were all one immortal woman who has been alive for millennia? The Her True Name series tells a few fragments of that Unnamed Heroine's story. You can download the collection of these short stories as an ebook over at the bookstore.
Ryan lives in Northern Indiana with his wife Sally, who designs wedding dresses and creates other freelance art. When he isn't reading or writing, he likes sitting on his porch and looking out at the lake, possibly with a mug of tea in his hand.
Sally and I left the baby with my parents and went out without for the 1st time. We were gone an hour; had some ice cream. It was fine.
