Eli RyderEli Ryder is a fiction writer from Lancaster, CA, a windy desert town about an hour north of Los Angeles.  Eli earned a Master’s Degree in English from CSU Northridge in 2014, teaches composition at a small private university in the Antelope Valley, and occasionally endures the torture of High School Substitute Teaching.  When hunched over his laptop, searching for a better turn-of-phrase, he is watching the Dodgers or the Packers and enjoying (or not, as the case may be) a craft beer at the local brewhouse.
