Ryan lives in a quiet cranny on the windswept fringes of Northamptonshire with his extremely patient better half, Sarah.

As a dabbler in all kinds of creative things, Ryan has spent most of his life drawing, painting, playing guitar and writing. For several years he paid his bills by moving things around in Quark and Photoshop (often described as ‘graphic design’).

When not sitting in front of a computer and writing, Ryan also enjoys reading, cooking, watching films, enjoying a beer or two, and collecting vast quantities of video games and old books.
