    My name is Ryan, and I live with my wife in Indiana. I'm a shy person, and I keep to myself. Social interaction makes me very anxious, so I tend to withdraw from people. I am not an aggressive person, I don't drink or smoke or do any drugs, and I have no tattoos. I try to be nice to everyone.

    I've been writing songs, poems, and narrative fiction since I was about 10. I've written five books, and I'm just now trying to publish one for the first time. The King's Eagle is a 53-thousand-word novella in high fantasy genre. If forced to compare to anyone, I'd say it fits in with Tolkien, R.A. Salvatore, and George R.R. Martin. I plan on publishing it through Amazon and CreateSpace.

    I've been playing music since I was 6. I play piano, guitar, bass, and a little bit of drums, as well as strumstick, harmonica. I also sing. I listed my YouTube channel as my website because I don't have a formal website. On my channel, you'll find hundreds of original songs as well as a few vlogs about silly things.
    I like many different kinds of music, but my tastes tend toward rock. I really enjoy The Smashing Pumpkins, Eels, Camera Obscura, Jurassic 5, Children of Bodom, Blind Guardian, Rhapsody of Fire, Epica, Nightwish,and Dragonforce, to name a few.

    I love language and conlanging. I developed a constructed language for The King's Eagle (and related stories). The language is called Imnura, and I blog about it every Monday. You can read my Imnura blog, Emnor Ilirpaliora, here:

    I'm here hoping to interface with fellow writers, to find camaraderie among like-minded individuals, and maybe even to review and have my work reviewed as well.

    music, writing, reading, painting, cooking, walks in the woods, philosophy, skateboarding, comic books, video games, conlanging, professional wrestling, MMA
