Hi, I'm Rye. Writer by day, call center agent by night. I love watching TV series and movies and listening to Taylor Swift. I'm shy at first, but will warm up to you once I get comfortable. I treat my readers as if they're my friends.

I mostly write science fiction, but I'm willing to explore different genres and grow as a writer. I've come from a long way, and I still have a long way to go.

I want to help aspiring writers like me as much as I could, so feel free to post your stories on my message board! Writing tips? Don't hesitate to shoot me a message! I will reply if I have the time.

2-time consecutive Watty Awards winner:
The Wattys 2017 (The Storysmiths)
The Wattys 2018 (The Heroes)

I believe that writing is a never-ending journey of bumpy roads and dead-ends, an infinite cycle of first drafts, revisions and frustrated sighs. An abyss of coffee and tears. Find the right words, speak your heart out, take chances, and never stop dreaming. Good luck on your writing journey!
