Ryne Billings was born on June 20, 1991 in the city of Ft. Smith, Arkansas, though he never lived there. He was raised in between Louisiana and Oklahoma, but Oklahoma is the only state he would call home. He is a graduate of Poteau High School and a sophomore at Carl Albert State College, majoring in English.
He has been writing since he was in sixth grade, though he only completed his first novel length work of original fiction when he was fourteen years old and a freshman in high school.
Among his greatest sources of inspiration are authors like Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson, Terry Goodkind, John Flanagan, Robert E. Howard, and David Dalglish.
