Patrick Ryder Writing
Hello and welcome to my new website.
If you like a good scare, you are in the right place. I write dark fiction, a term I have chosen
because it describes my writing better than any existing label I could find. For example, I wouldn't say everything I write
could be called horror, but it often contains elements of the horror genre. Ditto the thriller
and science fiction genres. I wouldn't even claim that all my work is entirely original, because I have been strongly
influenced by many existing writers, and an amount of subconscious copying is bound to happen. I think it must do
for all writers.
More than anything, my wish is to write stories that you, dear reader, enjoy reading. If you find deep meaning in any of my writing then that
is a message from my subconscious to your subconscious... and I would love you to get in touch and tell me about it!
