D.E. Ring

The Mystery Writer as Escape Artist

D.E. Ring grew up in small Canadian towns, where characters tell stories. Writing for a local paper demanded discipline and understanding the reader. Becoming a successful professional playwright brought rhythm to the words and a way with deft characterization. Business writing demanded research, brevity, and exciting copy for a global market. Always curious, still surprised, D.E. Ring is a creator of intriguing worlds to visit.

D.E. Ring is Full Member of Crime Writers of Canada and Playwrights Guild of Canada.

Wet cobblestones at night after rain on

'You're an artist, aren't you? I can always tell. It's the eyes.'

Gloria Swanson to D.E. Ring. Honest.
