Ryan McBeth wrote #MyRADGirlfriend for Auntminnie.com from August 2016 till September 2020 - a story that came out of a five-month relationship with a radiologist who was smarter than he will ever be.
Ryan retired from the military after 20 years and four deployments, the last of which was as an Infantryman in Iraq. He has a background in software development which is used as a counterpoint to Andy's social deficiencies in #MyRadGirlfriend.
Ryan is an avid runner, triathlete and Washington D.C. Sports fan. He lives in Silver Spring, Maryland even though his hometown of Philadelphia is never far from his thoughts.
Ryan is currently at work on The Win Machine: a novel about a hedge fund manager who invents a stock-picking artificial intelligence that predicts a war with China.
What does a brilliant software engineer do when he meets a radiologist who is far smarter? He makes a fool of himself.
On March 19th, 2003 Ryan crossed into Iraq and it changed his life forever.
A bold airborne raid is devised to end Gilead's reign of terror, but will it push America's remaining troops to the breaking point?
