Ryan Gattis is a writer & educator. His most recent novel, SAFE, is a heist thriller about a DEA safecracker gone rogue, ripping off gang-owned drug safes in order to help citizens hurt during the market crash of 2008. It’s essentially Robin Hood Noir. The book is set in the same world of South Central L.A. as his previous novel, ALL INVOLVED: A Novel of the 1992 L.A. Riots, which was grounded in 2.5 years of research & background spent with former Latino gang members, firefighters, nurses, & other L.A. citizens who lived through it. ALL INVOLVED won the American Library Association’s Alex Award & the Lire Award for Noir of the Year in France; translated into 11 languages, it has been called “a high-octane speedball of a read” by The New York Times & its film rights were acquired by HBO. Gattis is also the author of KUNG FU. He lives and writes in Los Angeles, where he is a member of the street art crew UGLARworks & a founding board member of 1888, a Southern California literary arts non-profit.Read more Read less
