I've given talks across North America including at special events like TEDx, XOXO, and BAHFest, at private companies like Blizzard, and at school and libraries around the world. I like to give inspiring presentations and workshops about writing fiction, non-fiction, comics, comedy, and interactive media. Talks are always original and adapted for your audience. If you're interested in exploring this please see my talks page for more information and a special contact address!


I like to travel and meet readers - best thing in the world! If you're in charge of a show and would like me to come (thank you!) please drop me a line at officeofryan@gmail.com.

Want to talk to someone much more professional?

Then you'll want to drop a line to my wonderful agents, Seth Fishman at The Gernert Company (literary) and Angela Cheng Caplan at Cheng Caplan Company (televison and movie).
