Ryan likes chocolate, the color aqua, and long walks on the beach. No, actually, scratch that. She loves Reese’s, the color aqua, and wearing flip flops everywhere. Every. Where.
Teacher turned writer, Ryan loves everything WHIMSICAL. Wait. Why does everyone write these things in third person? We ALLLL know the author fills these out themselves.
Let’s keep this serious. Truth is, I wasn’t born with special powers to read people’s minds. Nor was I given some amazing prophecy told by wizards in blue sparkly robes. I had a pretty normal life as a military brat. I lived in several states, visited parts of Asia, and even spent a few years in Okinawa. Maybe not so normal. *shrugs*
Graduated school. Graduated college. Started a family. Eventually, I was crazy enough that I started teaching middle school. After nine years, I taught over a thousand students!! That is a crap-ton of teenage attitude and hormones. Meh. I loved every minute of it and almost every one of my students. Almost. 😉
Though I don’t teach anymore, I enjoy writing giant fantasy worlds with strong heroines. I spend my free time gaming with my husband and daughter (#PCMasterrace), drawing, and painting. And sometimes I say funny stuff. Sometimes.
