In this 2015 memoir, Ryan documents his journey towards becoming a Pastry Chef.

Sage, Smoke & Fire
The world has fallen out of energetic balance. In the Deep South there is a remedy that is both powerful and dangerous--witches.
At the peak of summer, Nina is living a fast-paced life in New York City. But when the earth's gravitational pull activates a gene--making her and a few others capable of magic--she is called to duty in southern Louisiana to lead a coven of witches and restore balance to the world through magic. By autumn, witches are turning up dead and she has but one choice--defend the coven. And when she witnesses extraordinary powers beyond those of any known witch, Nina sets out on a magical quest through the dark and sultry swamps, voodoo shops, right-wing churches and alternate planes of consciousness to uncover the source of the dangerous gifts; all while trying to create peace not just within the coven, but with the people who knew her in the life she left behind.
Powdered Oak & Seven Metals
Release Date: Summer 2021
After Nina senses a push from Spirit, she relocates her coven to Nova, Colorado, a small, snowy mountain town just outside Denver. But when Leo—her most powerful and dangerously gifted witch decides to stray from the coven’s goal for motives of his own—the coven soon begins to unravel and find themselves in even greater peril than they had ever imagined possible; hunted by murderous witches hungry for power and revenge, with Death breathing down the neck of one of their own. As the rift between the coven and their prophesied goal widens, they struggle not only with their own fears and demons but a new plane of existence, while Leo is forced to make an impossible choice between restoring balance to the world—or his own soul.
