Robyn Ryle started life in one small town in Kentucky and ended up in another just down the river in Indiana. She’s not sure whether that’s progress or not. In between, she got her undergraduate degree at Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi, and her Ph.D. at Indiana-University, Bloomington. She teaches sociology at a small liberal arts college when she’s not writing and has stories in CALYX Journal, Bartleby Snopes, Stymie Magazine, Bluestem and Whiskeypaper, among others. She’s also written a sociology of gender textbook, Questioning Gender: A Sociological Exploration, as well as attempting several novels. For her next project, she’s contemplating a book about gender written as a choose your own adventure.
