Meet Novelist, Screenwriter, & Children's Author Kyle Ripton
Like all writers, I have a deep, abiding passion for creativity. Simply put, I'm a creative person. I fell in love with writing early as a youngster when I was first learning to write. Since then, it's all I've wanted to do aside from becoming a retired Army veteran. Where I differ from other writers is that I love seeing my words on the pages of creative imagination through storytelling. I'm a writer through and through, and I've worked on many different genres' from training programs for the government to children's books, film, and novels. Come, join me on a creative journey.
