Reese Ryan writes sizzling contemporary romance and women’s fiction populated by deliciously-flawed, multicultural characters. She is fascinated by the secrets people keep, and how the revelation of those secrets changes everything. She enjoys torturing her characters with family and career drama; reformed bad boys; and the occasional identity crisis.
Novelist, freelance journalist, and hopeless romantic, Reese Ryan, is a native of The Cleve (refer to her favorite 30 Rock episode for clarification). She lived in Northeast Ohio most of her life mainly because of the endless supply of fresh water; the vibrant arts and cultural scene; and one of the most amazing symphonies in the world. Reese now lives in Central North Carolina where she basks in the ubiquitous sunshine while enjoying the state’s many green spaces, and dodging the inordinate number of decidedly bad drivers (most of whom have migrated from other states). A self-proclaimed Bohemian Southern Belle, she treads the line carefully between being a “Northerner” and a “damned Yankee” despite her insistence on calling soda ‘pop’. She gauges her progress by the number of “bless your lil’ hearts” she gets each week. She is currently down to two.
Reese is an avid reader with a to-be-read stack that resembles a small skyscraper, a serious thing for brilliant singer/songwriters, and an incurable addiction to musical soundtracks and film scores. Her stories are set in the Midwest and Southeast because, she insists, not everything cool happens in New York or LA. Her fiction celebrates everyday, amazing women because they are brilliant, complicated, strong, emotional, funny, and sexy, and they should never apologize it. Reese’s novels are a love letter to her hometown that is as passionate and complex as the relationships between her characters.
