Ryan Schneider


I write fiction. I will make you think and feel. That is my job.

I am a husband, aspiring father, writer, and novelist.

I try to write stories I would enjoy reading.

My work is sometimes dark and heavy, sometimes light and fun, even romantic.

I co-authored "The Pillow Book" with Petal Darker.

I earned a Bachelor's degree in English Literature from the University of the Pacific. I have worked as a newspaper staff writer, a film critic, as well as co-host of a radio show. I studied screenwriting and independent producing at UCLA.

I have written 7 novels, many short stories, a dozen screenplays, and many essays. I also co-produced a 35mm short film.

I am also a commercially-licensed pilot with multi-engine and instrument ratings. I have flown various aircraft: Cessna 152, Cessna 172, Piper Arrow and Piper Seminole.

I live with my wife Taliya in Palm Springs. Taliya is a singer/songwriter and musician. Her music has been likened to Enya, Yanni, and Sarah McLachlan. Taliya plays guitar, piano, and flute. She was awarded a Guinness World Record for recording her original song "Flower Child" in 15 languages. She has toured much of Europe and the United States. She has written and produced two albums and is currently in the studio at work on her third album.

In 2013 I published the science fiction romantic novel EYE CANDY. Read it. You'll like it.

I also published THE DEMON DRIVERS TRILOGY BOOK 1 -- THE BEGINNING. It's all five books of The Go-Kids adventure series collected in one volume for the first time ever! Read it. You'll like it.

I am presently working on Book 2 of THE DEMON DRIVERS (coincides with book 6 of TGK), the epic tale of a thirteen-year-old boy named Parker who has the weight of the world on his shoulders, and the lives of his friends in his hands.
