Meet Trish Ryan

My dream, ever since I was a little girl, was to be a super hero. Specifically, I wanted to be one of the Wonder Twins, meeting with Superman and Wonder Woman at the Hall of Justice on Saturday mornings to fight evil and save the world. Lacking a twin, I got a law degree instead, thinking it would give me evil-fighting super hero powers. As it turns out, I was wrong.

Shortly after realizing that I hated billable hours, I ended (read: fled) my career in law, and spent the next few years trying to make sense of the world. I couldn't shake the belief that things could/should/would be different better, somehow if only I could figure out what really mattered. I wanted to know how things like spirituality and luck and intuition worked, and how I could make them work for me. So I embarked on a quest to find the right God, but spent much of my time trying to find the right guy. At a certain point, after accumulating a heaping pile of mistakes on both counts, I came to see that the two might be intertwined.

The good news is, after much trial and error, I finally found them both: the God, and the guy.

Now I live just outside Cambridge, Massachusetts with my super hero-husband Steve, and our genetically-improbable mixed-breed dog. My new book, He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not: A Memoir of Finding Faith, Hope, and Happily Ever After, is my hilarious, honest and thoughtful memoir about my search for God and a man. And while I sit at my laptop typing each day, the Wonder Twin dream lives on...
