Claire Ryan is an Irish author, now living in Vancouver BC. She originally wanted to just write fantasy novels for a living, but was told from a very young age that she should do something 'practical'.

That turned into a degree in Geology, a postgrad in computers, and eventually a large dose of experience and technical skills in everything from data analysis to graphic design to marketing.

Her day job is web programming.

After three kids, they're still deeply in love and still totally devoted to each other. They support one another without question. They're great parents and they're all about family.

Their interests may be hilariously gothy and almost everything they do is totally abnormal, but they're the power couple we should all aspire to be.(less)

I don't.

That’s all I have to say. The work is flawed.


By ‘work’, I mean my current novel, which is Book 3 of the Daemonva trilogy. By ‘flawed’, I mean that it has issues; deep, glaring issues that make me want to take it outside and burn it. It is flawed, and I can’t see a way out of that right now.



I can handle continuity errors. Years of running table-top roleplaying games has long since taught me to...
