I think the current human impact on the natural world is not sustainable, and that our survival depends on the survival of our fellow earthlings, including wild animals and plants. I wrote the Sky Chasers far in a future when Earth has become unlivable, and my characters have no choice but to look for a new planet home. In reality, we don't have this option. We need to take much better care of our world.(less)
Amy Kathleen Ryan It's really a great job. I would write even if I didn't get paid for it. It's like playing with my daydreams, making them real.

Who knew there were so many wolves in children's literature?

A lot of people, apparently.

I brushed up against one wolf when he interviewed me for a teaching job at the university where I was a student. I left my one hour conversation with Mr. Wolf feeling nearly certain he'd offer me a part time teaching gig. Minutes after the interview he emailed to ask me out to dinner. I burst into tears whe...

“[There's] one... thing I can tell you about human nature: beautiful people are the last ones you want to befriend. Beautiful people float through life thinking that it's perfectly normal for others to gaze at them adoringly, and open doors for them, and defer to their opinion... Doesn't anyone understand that beautiful people are stupid? That's why nature made them beautiful, so they'd have a chance at surviving in the wild. And how do they survive? They use people and then they drop people, and they float away on the currents of their own gorgeousness to the next poor girl who thinks that being friends with a beutiful person will somehow make her beautiful, too. I've got news for you: Hanging around beautiful people just makes you uglier by comparison.”

Amy Amy, I've been reading 'Vibes' so far(still am) and I its been a fantastic read from the start. I love the main character, and you got a laugh out of me on the first paragraph. I'm in love with humor from books, so you can tell I'm enjoying 'Vibes'. I would of swallowed up the whole book in one day, but homework has been getting in the way. Anyways, lovin your writing and thanks for the add :) -AlienAmy
