John Ryers

John is a graphic designer by day, and graphic designer by night (depending on the client), but most importantly, he's a writer at heart. His dreams include writing for a living, experiencing virtual reality on a Matrix-esque level, and flying unaided (or possibly via really sweet jetpack). He lives somewhere in southern Ontario, Canada with his wife and twin daughters.

John writes all genres but prefers dark fantasy over most anything else. This is due in part to the fact that he likes it the best, and because it's awesome. John prefers blue cheese over cheddar, cats over dogs, and will attempt to answer any question with sarcasm whether appropriate or not. He completed his first novel The Glass Thief in 2017 and you should buy it. Or don't. He's not the boss of you.

Lenka's List had the pleasure to publish this interview on: June 2nd, 2017
When I was a child my dad used to tell me made-up fantasy stories all the time and really think that sparked a desire in me to create my own. I wrote my first story in Grade 1, about my hamster who suffered an early demise and was replaced by a less than spectacular goldfish who later tried to end his own life by jumping out of the bowl. I suppose that story was the inception of my affinity for dark fantasy.
