In 2014, Ryan self-published a novella called "Fragments from 5th Ave." Described by the Wilmington Star-News Ben Steelman as a "'Big Chill' of the Jazz Age," the book tells the story of three friends and one stranger sharing a dilapidated mansion in 1920s Wilmington, North Carolina. As the four become closer, their time together becomes shorter, and they must decide whether to keep living together in the enjoyable present or move forward separately to unknown futures.
