Ricky German is an aspiring writer and professional desk jockey. When not doing either he is a keen practitioner of aikido, of which he is a black belt, and spends time hiking the moors and woodlands, exploring the paths less travelled. He is also torturing his neighbours with an ill-conceived attempt to learn the violin. Ever the escapist, he is currently evading real life to work on Aedan and Linetís world in the form of several short stories.
His story VICTIMS OF VANITY won joint first prize in Crimson Cloak Publishing's 2016 short story writing competition and is published in the anthology compilation of the best entries THE RIDER.
THE RIDER consists of the prizewinning and best runner-up stories of 1500-3000 words, based around a stock picture, that were entered in the 2016 Crimson Cloak Publishing short story writing competition.
