R. M. Ridley


R. M. Ridley lives in Ontario, Canada and, from his front porch, can see the middle of nowhere. His yard is filled with fowl and, despite having a green thumb, not much else. Married to a woman patient enough to listen about plot ideas over morning coffee, he is truly blessed. He carries a flashlight with him to the bathroom as to not trip over when his St. Bernard who always sleeps in the most inconvenient places, and to avoid the four cats who fling themselves between his legs, for the shear joy of watching him fail his arms wildly against gravity. Currently, R. M. Ridley is working on writing the sixth novel in the White Dragon Black world, and has a few short stories in various states of completion making him feel guilty that they are unfinished. When not writing a fictional world, Ridley lives in one, by being a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism – a historical recreation group. His hobby with-in this hobby, is spending time building calluses on his fingers, in the hopes of producing pretty things for people to wear. Never satisfied with really knowing how to do one thing, when he can know a little of everything, he flings himself into new challenges constantly. He has never quite mastered the following skills; blacksmithing, bone carving, jewelry making, and lapidary work – and is still looking for more things he can dabble in. The SCA also helps allow Ridley try to keep a physical a shape that isn’t pear. He accomplishes this by spending a number of hours every week, widely flailing a rapier about, picturing himself as D’Artagnan while appearing more as a ten year old with a stick. But the sound of steel clashing on steel gets his blood pumping and, with a sword in one hand, and a dagger in the other, there is always a wide grin on his face. To those who call Ridley an escapist from reality – he has only one response, ‘From what?’ Reality isn’t always kind to Ridley, as he suffers from severe bipolar disorder – that is thankfully well controlled due to proper medication. R. M. Ridley believes wholeheartedly in being open about his mental health issues because myths should be kept to stories.
