‘Havoc and consequence’ is the lens through which I view the world, and all my muddled psychoses. Though when I’m not here, I’m writing books.
I’m a paragraph burnt to memory. I’m special and ordinary.
My name is Mark Ryan and I am everything. Good ricocheting towards the bad. A jumbled mass of Christmas tree lights, blinking out of unison. When these are untangled, I write. I write poetry, stories and creative art that I hope gets people thinking. To get them to crack open their own souls and pluck out the good, the positive and the spirit of change.
For those wishing to know, I was born in Oxford, growing up in the shadow of the dreaming spires. I was born in a snowstorm which explains perhaps my leaning towards arctic conditioning and survival, along with the beauty of snow. I studied Film at London Metropolitan University, graduating to M.A in Film Theory. I’ve published a few pieces of work; fiction, poetry anthologies and short stories as well as a visual arts poetry book called ‘Graffitied Heart’. My work leans, bends and sways to the metaphysical and supernatural, with a tendency to dabble in the macabre. Questioning questions and searching for answers in the eye of the storm, where there is always hope….and always a time for change.
