About the Author

More than an Author

Ryan McHargue grew up in the Pacific Northwest astride the mighty Columbia River where, as a youth in the 1980’s and 90’s, he made a strong group of friends that he’s still close with today. They consumed a steady diet of action and sci-fi TV shows and movies, played role-playing games, and dabbled in various creative pursuits including starting a short-lived punk band in high school. Ryan has had plenty of Joe jobs and spent some time as volunteer firefighter/EMT before spending a quarter of a century as an IT professional.

In the late 90’s, spurred on by the creative energies of his friends, Ryan decided to try his hand at becoming a published author. While on an Alaskan cruise, he took a ballpoint pen and a steno pad and started his first piece of fiction. Some of it was good. A lot of it wasn’t. But through practice and persistence he has steadily honed his craft and finished his first novel in 2023. There after diving right into the sequel, aspiring to much more than just a trilogy. Ryan also hosts a podcast, Geezers of the Game, which focuses on tabletop games, the game industry, writing and art. He now lives in New Mexico with his wife of 27 years, their daughter, two dogs and three cats.
