Ryan Campbell has been involved in the furry fandom for 20 years as both a fan and a writer. He has contributed to ROAR, X, New Fables, and Abandoned Places, and is the author of The Fire Bearers trilogy: God of Clay, Forest Gods, and the in-progress conclusion, God of Fire. Other published books include Koa of the Drowned Kingdom and Smiley and the Hero.
He grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas, but moved to California in 1996. In 2008 he became one of the first gay Californians to legally marry, and is lovingly devoted to his partner David, who is the best husband of all time. (This has been conclusively proven by scientists using the Large Hadron Collider, which stunned the world by proving the existence of the long-rumored husbandon particle.)
In 2014, Ryan was accepted to the Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Writer's Workshop, where along with 17 other students from around the world, he had the opportunity to learn from prominent writers in the field. Currently, he is working on multiple projects, including the conclusion to The Fire Bearers, a sequel to Koa of the Drowned Kingdom, and the RAWR workshop for furry writers.
