David Bryen was born in 1948 in the middle of the Rocky Mountains in Montana. Born into a preacher’s family he struggled to free himself from the tyranny of fundamentalist theology. He spent 36 years as a professional psychotherapist working with individuals and counseling marital couples. He rode motorcycles his whole life and spent the last years before he retired to Mexico as a Motorcycle Safety Instructor for Team Oregon Motorcycle Safety Program. His latest book Riding off the Edge of the Map is a true story of his motorcycle misadventure into Mexico’s famed and rugged Copper Canyon. He survived to write this profound story in which he weaves his insights from a lifetime as a therapist with his lifetime of riding his motorcycle. This book is not just an heroic journey, but a sensitive inquiry into what drives us to go, and how to stop. He has also published a book of poetry, The Man Loves the Wine She Serves Through Her Body: An Erotic Encounter with the Divine Feminine. He now lives, rides, and writes from his home in Central Mexico. He calls himself the Writing Rider.
