About Me

I’m Ryan. You can check out my bio, but in short, I’ve been a professional writer and a career librarian for over thirty years. I’ve written a bunch of books, become an indie publisher, and also love creating artwork and connecting with my fellow readers living this READINARY life! We only get to share our short lives on this (or any) planet with a few people—I look forward to getting to know you.
