Writing under the pen name, Emilie Ryan, we, Milena Parent, an award-winning professor, and John Kowal, a clinical psychologist, share a passion for wine, travel, and a good story. We endeavour, through our writing, to entertain and educate by blending different elements and perspectives. We also strive to create engaging, memorable characters that share in the experience of being human. Together, we have published 11 books, including one novel, LOVE DECANTED, 35 book chapters, and 90 international peer-reviewed journal articles. We have also delivered over 160 national and international conference presentations and have participated in radio, print, and television media interviews. We’ve travelled extensively, both in Canada and abroad, and share a love of learning as much as we share a passion for writing. Inspired by our appreciation of wine, especially the experience of opening a good bottle in the company of family and friends, we offer our own wine reviews. We also profile some of the amazing wineries we’ve visited in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand on our Instagram account (emilieryan_author), Twitter account (@emilie_author), and author website (
