Ryan Osborn was born in Peoria, Illinois. An avid player of tabletop role-playing games, and Backgammon, Ryan enjoyed storytelling in any form or genre, especially gay romantic suspense thrillers and comedies, and daytime soap operas, including but not limited to plays, audio plays, poetry, music, short stories, novellas, and novels. As a gay teenager and young adult he would read his grandmother and Mother's romance novels and wanted to know why there were none for him that ended with a HEA, so he decided that he would put his writing talent to good use and wrote three YA gay romances in high school, and has been writing them ever since.

Grow Old Along With Me

Now available

Full of the grief of loss, uncommon grace, and hope for a new beginning, Told in a lyrical form, "Grow Old Along With Me" is the story of Papa and Daddy. Two men who find their illicit love affair brought into the light of day by the final wish of a dying man.

 (3 Stars) "I absolutely loved this story of two men, who are brought together by a dying man's wish. This was Sweet and refreshing!" Maxine69


(5 stars)  a beautiful testimony to love, yes, indeed.

I was held fast by the romantic tension within the first few paragraphs.

Without any spoilers, I want to say this is a highly emotional situation, a love triangle that seemed to exclude the usual ugliness.

The story evoked the tenderness of The Bridges of Madison County. This was a short story and I'm reaching out to the Author to give us the full story on these three men. It would be a heart-rending story there, I am sure.


Can't get enough?
