Welcome! Meet Author L. Ryan Storms & her debut Young Adult Fantasy, A Thousand Years to Wait.
L. Ryan Storms is a writer, photographer, traveler, and dreamer. She’s a member of the Eastern Pennsylvania chapter of SCBWI who spends her days freelancing and writing blogs, but mostly she writes novels near and dear to her heart. Her writing career is the epitome of patience and perseverance. She’s a firm believer in the law of attraction and doesn’t know the meaning of the word ‘quit.’
Once upon a time, Storms majored in Marine Science, minoring in Chemistry and Psychology, at Kutztown (pronounced Kootz-town, particularly if you’re Amish) University of Pennsylvania, then went on to work as a pharmaceutical microbiologist. She spent nearly a decade in pharma before getting her MBA and leaving to do her heart’s work in animal welfare, where she worked administrative and marketing roles. Her favorite part of the job was photographing the animals because nothing is more fun than wearing dog slobber and cat fur for the sake of getting animals into new and loving homes!

Now she works in PR & Marketing for her local library and has written articles featured on the front page of local newspapers.
Storms lives in Pennsylvania with her cancer-survivor husband, two children, and a “rescue zoo” featuring two dogs, two cats, and an ex-racehorse. When she’s not writing, reading, or keeping her kids in line, she enjoys hiking, photography, and acrylic painting.
