Finding Time to Write with Tim Ryan
Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan has proven that, no matter how hectic life can get, anyone can find time to write. As a hard-working, travel-inclined politician and father of three, his schedule is always full. However, by taking short writing retreats and working out a chapter or two over the course of three or four days, he has managed to publish two books and has plans for a third one. Congressman Ryan has served in the House of Representatives for seventeen years and, while he certainly has a love for politics, Healing America and The Real Food Revolution shine light on two of his personal interests: meditation and healthy eating. When he is not working or writing, Tim spends time with his family at their home in Howland, Ohio.
Tim Ryan was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2002, at the age of 29, and is currently serving in his fifth term representing Ohio’s 17th Congressional District. He maintains a strong commitment to the economic and social well-being of his constituents in northeast Ohio. He serves as a member of the House Armed Services Committee, as well as its Subcommittees on Readiness and on Emerging Threats and Capabilities. He also serves as a member of the House Budget Committee and co-chairman of the Congressional Manufacturing Caucus.
