I first met Ryder Windham at Star Wars Celebration VI in Orlando in 2012. Ryder was doing a panel presentation and he was talking about the Chiss. Later I had a chance to chat with him, and we talked about a myriad of topics. Not only has Ryder written a prodigious number of books, comics, manuals, and guides, he teaches classes for writing and drawing comics and also character design at Rhode Island School of Design Continuing Education. He is passionate about donating blood; as a physician, I’ve witnessed many lives saved by that kind of generosity.
I’ve wanted to interview him for FANgirl ever since. I was really thrilled when he agreed to discuss writing, organizing blood drives, and his latest Star Wars book, Ezra’s Gamble. I hope you enjoy reading his interview as much as I enjoyed interviewing Ryder.
