Ryan wrote his first fantasy story at age fourteen when he discovered that writing about the lands and magic of centuries past was quite a bit easier than hunting for magical portals to transport him there. Since then he’s published short stories and quite a bit poetry but still hasn’t found one those illusive magical portals just yet.
At heart he’ll always be a Tar Heel, but now he lives in Georgia with his wife, son and two furballs. If he’s not working on his latest fantasy story, you can find him reading, people watching at Starbucks or secretly swinging lightsabers around in the backyard. Maps to hidden magical portals are always welcome.
