I am excited to promote my father's first novella "The Bean Sidhe."

“Bean Sidhe, Gaelic for Banshee, is a spirit whose wailing warns of a death in the house”

Percy thought he had it all figured out; good education, good job, good wife, work hard, play by the rules. But he discovered very late in life that not everyone has read the same rule book. Tired, angry, and bitter, Percy, for the first time in his life, decides he wants to kill someone. Revenge for someone he barely knew. Percy quickly learns that murder isn't as easy as it looks, and keeping the whole mess secret even harder. A funny, gritty look at killing your fellow man.

"Ernest L Canning has crafted a fast-paced, thrilling, and riotous examination of the many ways in which human will is trumped by chance and circumstance. Jovially and cleverly written, THE BEAN SIDHE is a breath of fresh air." ~Neil Czeszejko for IndieReader

Ryan L Canning grew up in a small town in Muskoka, Ontario in an artistic environment. Both parents are avid readers and his father was a woodworker. An appreciation for art and the written word were instilled in Ryan at an early age. He explored many different mediums before finding his niche with costume designing and writing. Ryan L Canning has two self-published novels "Syn" and "Synce..." which he wrote under the pseudonym, R.L. Canning. Ryan has taken the lessons he learned writing the 2 full-length novels and applied them to his thriller novella "The Plague" and horror novella "Hel Takes a Holiday."
