Currently Malin Rydén is working on several novels, some of which are presented below. As they are in various state of completion and editing, the titles and contents are subject to change. Please contact the author if you are interested in further details.
Everyone wears a mask. What we see of people on the surface is so rarely what’s ticking underneath. We start young, learning to hide who we are and what we’ve done in case anyone reaches our center and realises just how fragile we really are…or how dangerous. And, in Cortland Hunt’s case, what he’s hiding might just be more than Ian Tanner is prepared for.
Breaks is the story of two young adults coming to terms with who they were, who they are and who they’ll become. While Ian can’t look forward beyond his school years, too occupied with playing shallow roles that will allow him the easiest path through life, Cortland can’t keep his head in the present. The shadows of his past mistakes are holding his future to ransom, and if Ian keeps digging deeper, he may just find himself caught up in them as well.
It’s a love story…but a little broken.
Devlin O’Neill had really stepped in it this time. The job was supposed to be a simple snatch and grab, nothing new, nothing special. After all, Dev had been pinching dreams since he was a kid, trading vanished nightmares for slurpees down at the local 7-Eleven. But when he agreed to enter the dreams of aging mobster John Cameron, he finds himself up against not only the festering wounds of past crimes, but against a very real and very present evil.
The Unkindness of Ravens
Morgan deCiel has a successful career (well, somewhat) as a mercenary mage, a large circle of friends (some of them even likes him) and an active love life (if occasionally an expensive one). However, when he decides to go back to take an interest in his estranged son and teach him the life lessons he so well needs, he quickly finds himself in over his head. Never has good parenting been this complicated.
The Grey (co-written with Emma Vieceli)
Nobody thought much of it when the mist first moved in, obscuring people and buildings alike. But then the phones stopped working, the radios grew silent and the television filled with quiet static. The world turned quiet. Then it screamed.
When society breaks down, what happens to the people that form it? Solomon Blake taught history, but he never expected to make it. Lewis Richardson made his living fixing cars, but there is no fixing a world gone mad, is there? A panicked flight turns into a quest for answers, but in the end there is only one question that truly needs to be answered:
As the world ends, what do you have left to fight for?
