K. Francis Ryan


     Thanks for stopping to take a look. Here is what you can expect from this website.

     First of all, the welcome page is the right place to learn about me, my remarkable books and projects.

     Following the Meet the Author section, you’ll find links to my books along with a comment and contact area. This is a really useful area where you can make suggestions of things you’d like to see, to just make comments or to drop me a line directly via email. I'm always happy to talk with fans and prospective fans!

The Blog Tab

     On this tab, you’ll find a whole raft of my random thoughts, publishing news and reviews. I’ll post new content once a week so check back often.

The Paranormal Mystery Tab

     Here you’ll find information on The Echoes Quartet. It is a complete set of contemporary paranormal suspense novels. Detailed descriptions and links for where to buy the books can be found below each title.

The Romantic Suspense Tab

     Under this tab, you’ll find the back-cover blurbs of three contemporary novels all of which have strong a suspense plot running throughout. The first two, Journey of the Heart and The Assistant, have been entered in regional and national contests for unpublished works. The third is a manuscript working its way toward publication. The working title is The Hostile Takeover.


All the best,

Meet the Author

     K. Francis Ryan is a freelance writer who coaches writing-challenged business professionals around the world when he isn't writing novels.

     His experience as a feature writer for a small town newspaper, a police officer and an internationally accredited stockbroker is evident the writing of his paranormal mystery series, The Echoes Quartet and his new romantic suspense novels.

Book I - Echoes Through the Mist

Book II - Echoes Through the Vatican

Book III - Echoes From the Past

Book IV - Echoes and Light

     Mr. Ryan has lived the history, language, humor, lore, music, madness and magic of Ireland by way of a lively Irish heritage. When coupled with his careful research and extensive travel in Ireland, The Echoes Quartet has developed a voice all its own.

     He is currently working on his second Romantic Suspense novel and outlining a third.

     Until recently he lived on the side of an active volcano in an even more active earthquake zone in the Republic of Costa Rica. Surely that's not as horrifying as it sounds, right?

     He currently resides in Arizona, which isn't as horrifying as it sounds.  Most of the time.

The Fine Print

     I’ve looked at plenty of examples so I could get the just-right legal weasel wording to convey some pretty simple facts. I gave up on that and decided to do it in English instead. 

     When you send me an email, several things will happen. First, I will respond. Second, I will not automatically put you on my newsletter list unless you expressly tell me it is okay.  The newsletter is so I can send you special offers or announcements.  Things like:

When I have a new book release

When a free book is going to be on offer

When a book can be pre-ordered from Amazon

When there is a special announcement

When sample chapters are available on the website

     You can, of course, unsubscribe from my newsletter at any time without any hard feelings.

     Trust I will not flood your email box with vacation photographs or pictures of what I had for lunch.  I do not use Facebook so I'll not be targeting you with ads of any sort.

     Here is the important part – I will never share your email address with anyone. Ever.
