I’ve lived all over the world, raised in a family with eleven brothers and sisters. I spent my early childhood in Hawaii and the rest of my growing-up years trying to figure out a way to get back there, with stops in South Korea, Michigan and Germany along the way. Before writing fiction, I tried my hand at many things, including war game simulation and youth development research. But I decided it was much more fun to work on stories than statistics.

These days, I still love Hawaii, but have found my home under the moody skies of the Pacific Northwest.

I had a chance to see some footage and it looks amazing. Estimated release is early next year. (If you want to see some photos from the set, check out #nervenyc on Twitter.)

“we've learned an interesting rule about fame. Those who seem desperate for it are the people that others least want to see.”
Jeanne Ryan, Nerve
tags: fame

“Why should I pay to watch when I can be paid to play?”
Jeanne Ryan, Nerve

“I need to use my mind in a way that slows the out-of-control beating in my chest. The darkness around us could be anywhere, anytime. I could be alive or dead. Okay, I choose alive. While I’m at it, I choose the darkness to be a gentle blanket on a moonless night, where I rest a few feet from a boy who’s warm and sweet. When he holds me, his heart beats strong with what I tell myself is passion, not fear.”
Jeanne Ryan, Nerve
