About the Author

Ryan A. Summers, Ry, Haskell McRobbins, Sahm Ataine King

Ryan A. Summers (also known as Haskell McRobbins) discovered the power of the written word at the budding age of 16 when challenged with a high school poetry writing assignment, which resulted in his magnum opus, The Chains of Mobius. That poem was subsequently destroyed because it was a piece of shit, and since its destruction, it would be another 7 years before he’d, again, take up the pen.

Prolific photographer, hell spawn, and author of just two legitimately published works, Ryan now resides in Norman, Oklahoma, which he considers a temporary setback. When he isn’t writing poetry, he is plotting the demise of his enemies, concocting new recipes based on virgins’ tears, and generally doing what millenials do best (which, according to Clint Eastwood, is being an unproductive, overly sensitive member of the “pussy generation” – his words, not Ryan’s).

Welcome to Black and Hellbound, the chronicles of an angry, black, atheist poet.  If you’re scared, say you’re scared.
