Ryan's Books

Written  In the Stone

What will you do with your dash? You know, the dash between the date you're born and the day you die?

Ethan Whitehead wasn't doing much with his. He had defied the odds in the Middle East as an embedded reporter during the war, experiencing the kind of up-close trauma that would either break a guy, or inspire him to new heights when he survives. It was definitely the kind of trauma that made headlines. But that was a long time ago. The kind of distant memory that came up only in cold sweats and sudden flashbacks.

Oh sure, life is good now. He had what some would say was a glamorous job as a globetrotting journalist living in London. He was happily married to a remarkable and gorgeous woman. But he wasn’t fulfilled. He was simply going with the flow.

When an unspeakable tragedy strikes his family living in a small Alabama town, Ethan is forced to return home to the States to tackle some harsh truths about his family and his past.

Oh, and while he’s there, he gets a once in a lifetime story dropped into his lap that could shake the foundation of the United States Government to its core. All in a day’s work. All in a day’s headline.

Full of twists and turns, with just the right touch of wry humor and human insight, this debut novel from Ryan D. Hall will keep you turning the pages, ready for what comes next. Pick up your copy today.

Mining For MY Voice

Children raised in a world of familial trauma and health scares can develop pretty deep defense and survival mechanisms to simply exist in a scary and ever-changing world.

For Ryan Hall, his defense mechanism was that he became silent. On days when he didn’t have to go to school, he would spend upwards of 22 hours a day in his room behind a closed door. He would play video games and watch TV instead of sharing his voice and sharing himself.

Silent and in his bedroom were where Ryan felt safe.

Mining For My Voice is the debut memoir by bestselling author and coach Ryan D. Hall.

In Mining For My Voice, Ryan vulnerably shares about events and people in his life who taught him that his voice didn't matter as well as the events, people, and creatures who taught him that his voice could rattle the foundation of humanity.

Mining For My Voice is about how a meek and terrified little boy grew into a man who uncovered his world-rattling voice.
