MENTAL HEALTH

NEWSPAPERS. WEBSITES. BOOKS. MAGAZINES.

From an early age, I dreamed of becoming a professional writer and journalist. 

From my bedroom on a Wirral council estate, I achieved my goal, developing a freelance career working with some of the most illustrious media outlets in the world.

With a versatile style, I have reported on a broad range of topics, developing a strong reputation for written excellence.

RADIO. PODCASTS. TELEVISION. COMMENTARY.

My skills as a sports analyst and mental health campaigner have been utilised by major radio stations.

I have appeared on talkSPORT, BBC Radio Merseyside and Radio City Talk, gaining proficiency as an in-studio guest and live analyst.

I'm particularly passionate about podcasting, and I have appeared on a number of shows relating to a wide range of topics, including Optimal Living Daily.

My knowledge of Tranmere Rovers has led to multiple television appearances, most notably with BBC One, with whom I collaborated on a Road to Wembley documentary in 2020.

I opened my Christmas present from my granddaughter to find your book enclosed. I sat down and did not move for two days, while I read every word of the book. Thank you Ryan for the happiness those memories and all the other memories your book brought back to me.

Thank you Ryan. I’ve supported Tranmere for 73 years, and that’s one of the finest articles I have ever read about the team, club and community.

Thank you for sharing your words. I'm really glad you wrote them down, and even further took that step to share them. This article brings me comfort and I feel connected to you despite never meeting you and that's just really cool and special. Thanks for existing and using your voice. I hope you continue to write when you feel called to.
