Ryan Uytdewilligen is a writer born and raised in Lethbridge, Alberta. He currently resides in Vancouver, BC where he works as a novelist, screenwriter, and film enthusiast. Ryan studied Broadcasting at Lethbridge College which led to a few on air and on camera gigs and a stint as a creative writer for some local radio stations. From there, his passion and knowledge of cinema crossed paths and led him to Vancouver Film School where he studied screenwriting. This led to his first short films Tea Time and Even the Devil Swiped Right. He currently has several screenplays under option agreement with film companies and constantly works hard to create new engaging stories.

His first Non Fiction Film History Book 101 Most Influential Coming of Age Movies was published through Algora Publishing. The book explores what it was like to grow up in each decade of the past 100 years and which films  captured and inspired each era.

With a love for travel, food, and of course classic movies, Ryan continues to write and hopes you enjoy his work.
