Born in the US, Ry Herman is now a permanent Scottish resident. He has been writing for most of his life, and his debut novel, the queer supernatural romcom Love Bites, was published by Jo Fletcher Books in July of 2020. Ry is bisexual and genderqueer.
Ry has worked at a variety of jobs, including submissions editor, theatre technician, and one job which could best be described as typing the number five all day long.
He acts and directs, and performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017 and 2019. Hobbies include baking bread, playing tabletop roleplaying games, and reading as many books as humanly possible.
