About Ryan

Ryan has spent most of the last 18 years as a writer and journalist. He began his professional writing career as a copywriter—mostly writing business plans, sales letters, and website copy. He soon started writing essays and short stories as well. In 2005, Ryan began work on his first attempt at writing a novel. Completed in 2006, it is now locked safely away where no one will be subjected to its dreadfulness.

Taking what he learned from the experience, Ryan soon began work on other novels. “Writing is a process,” he says. “One of the things I love about writing is there’s always more to learn. I could spend the next fifty years writing and probably still wouldn’t master everything about it.”

Music has always played an important role in Ryan’s life as well. He plays the guitar and drums, but his favorite instrument is the bass guitar, which he’s been playing since he was 12. He has composed, produced, and written several songs, and he’s played in bands, performed on albums, co-produced records, composed orchestral pieces, and accompanied other musicians on stage.

Ryan currently lives with his beautiful wife and their three crazy cats in a charming 60-year-old home they are renovating in Albuquerque’s Uptown area.
