R. M. Ridley's debut novel, Tomorrow Wendell by Xchyler Publishing is now available.

'When predictions tell Wendell Courtney he’s going to die, he turns to the one man he hopes can help. Jonathan Alvey’s no stranger to the strange. But, unlike the private investigator’s run-of-the-mill zombie cases, he can find no trace of magic around Wendell, and no hint of an adversary. Alvey certainly has magic and wits enough to solve the mystery, but is his offering to the insatiable Dragon Black sufficient? Or is Wendell truly destined to die?'

His latest short story can be found in this Anthology by the same publisher.

R. M. Ridley has been writing for three decades for the simple reason that his Muse fills his head with images, and words, and he has no choice but to write them down.

His Muse shares stories both short, and long, with him and their themes range from the gruesome to the fantastical.

Living on a small homestead, raising chickens and sheep, gives him the luxury of writing when his Muse tells him to and doing all the other work the rest of the time.

As a individual who suffers from severe Bi-polar disorder, R. M. Ridley is a strong believer in being open about mental health issues. His life has its ups and downs, and writing is his escape when his thoughts become too wild.
