Growing up reading the works of literary masters of horror, Ryan Lee Klingensmith envisioned the day when his own works of horror would be displayed amongst theirs, his last name conveniently positioning his books on shelves between the works of Stephen King and Dean Koontz. However, his literary desires slowly began to change in college, when majoring in psychology and working at a psychiatric hospital brought him face to face with true horror: not the supernatural realm of possessed Plymouth Furies or nightmarish human-beasts, but the real-life adolescent nightmares of trauma and abuse survivor’s. Informing and inspiring his writing, Ryan's books cover subject matter just as dark, but perhaps even more frightening because the stories he has written reveal the reality of trauma and abuse that some children endure.
