Sky Ryan was a Portland stripper and zine writer. She published many zines, notably Cryptic Crap, Motherfucking Titty Sucking Two-Balled Bitch and 1985: The Anti-Scene Zine. Her work was featured in the Factsheet Five Zine Reader.

In 1997, she began an affair with ANSWER Me! co-publisher Jim Goad. Jim eventually filed a restraining order against Ryan, but their relationship continued until 1998, when he was arrested and served a prison term for beating her. After Goad was sentenced, she became close friends with his ex-wife Debbie, also a zinester. Ryan is now a born-again Christian, married, and legally named Sky Ryan Cross. She no longer publishes zines, however, she and Marc Parker Azmacourt made a DIY movie, which was made available to the public in 2005. Follow the link below for ordering info.
