Ralph Rotten

After a long battle with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, the author known as Ralph Rotten succumbed to his illness on December 20th, 2021. During his illness, Ralph remained optimistic and kept up his fight until the very end. Ralph’s final instructions included a request that in lieu of flowers or cards, mourners instead donate to Ralph’s favorite writing hangout:

Ralph Rotten is an asshole. It's not a claim to fame, but rather a statement of fact; the sky is blue, water is wet, and Ralph is a degenerate jerk. Whatever you do, don't lend him any money.


But if you're looking for a solid, character-driven story, then Ralph is just the author for you. Known for creating fantastic tales filled with an ethnically diverse cast, Rotten books never disappoint.


Based in Tucson, Arizona, Ralph Rotten enjoys placing many of his tales in the American Southwest. He also enjoys long walks on the beach, and his turn-offs are tasers & flashing blue lights. Known for his obsessive-compulsive nature, Ralph starts writing every day at 4am, seven days a week.


So step outside of your comfort zone and try a Rotten novel; you won't be sorry.

You can still purchase any of Ralph's book. All proceeds go to his family.
