Connect with Ruth
I sold my first romance novel to Harlequin on July 8, 1988 – a day I’ll never forget. By the following year I was able to quit my day job as editor of two weekly newspapers and fulfill my lifelong dream of writing full-time.
In the early ’90s, my husband and I moved from Southern California to a pine forest north of Colorado Springs, where we live today with one dog and three cats. As well as writing romance novels, I occasionally teach fiction classes and volunteer at local senior centres to lead workshops on 'Writing Your Life Story.'
In my spare time I can be found in my sewing and craft room. With sewing machine and serger, I turn out not only clothing but strange and exotic items such as embroidered toilet paper and photos printed on fabric, which I cheerfully foist off on friends and acquaintances.
