Ryan Elliot Wilson

Ryan Elliot Wilson shunned the suspicious hospitality of the Midwest and the bizarre mix of Hell on Earth meets Happiest Place on Earth of Florida for the great, continually unfolding spectacle of humanity that is Los Angeles. There he found his tribe of the botched in the form of East Side poets and musicians, Hollywood agents gone mad, and socially inept high school teachers. Wilson has found this mix to be ideal for his pH. His novel SPIRAL BOUND BROTHER (Perfect Edge Books) came out in 2013. Some of his other writing can be found in the anthology, IN SEARCH OF A CITY: Los Angeles in 1000 Words, Thunderdome, Drift, and The Painted Bride Quarterly. He teaches creative writing, works in high school counseling, and lives in Los Feliz with his family. He has never appeared on a gameshow.
