Nathan Howe and I wrote the Magical Awakening series together under our pen names Nathan Ryan and Nicole Beyer. Now, we have a new joint pen name, Ryan Ingersoll!
Ryan Ingersoll writes YA gamelit stories. Gamelit stories have game-like aspects to them. In our first series, the superheroes can see stats of other people and gain levels and more powers.
Ryan’s first book, Rosethorn, will come out later this month!
Even the greatest heroes start at level one.
Seventeen-year-old Hazel lives on the streets of Philly, a tough city that has never cut her a break. Then, one day, Hazel discovers she can control plants, grow them, or kill them.
But she’s not the only one with new superpowers.
Eighteen-year-old Ace has it all—the love of his life, a baby on the way, money—only his parents don’t approve of the union. When Ace loses everything, he gains his superpowers after a chance encounter with Hazel.
While Hazel rises as Rosethorn, Ace stumbles into the darkness as Mimic. Who will win for the fight for control of the City of Brotherly Love?
Rosethorn contains action, drama, highs and lows, romance, and light gamelit elements. If you love superhero origin stories, this one’s for you.
