Meet Ryley...

Ryley Banks writes best-selling and award-winning sexy romance, mostly of the LGBTQ+ variety, but hey, she’s not picky. Everyone deserves a happy ending! She’s a connoisseur of tea and gin and loves language, especially creative profanity.

When she’s not begging her characters to behave or reading fanfic, you can find Ryley watching cat videos on the internet, traveling, or, if you’re lucky, crafting the next story to make you smile and set you on fire.

Ryley’s work has hit best-seller lists and won or placed in several awards. Fate’s Awakening (coming soon) won the 2021 Passionate Plume award in the Virgin (unpublished) category. Her flash fiction story, Right Place, Right Time, was an honorable mention in the Queer Sci Fi “Ink” contest in 2021.
