M. Ruth Myers received a Shamus Award from the Private Eye Writers of America for Don’t Dare a Dame, the third book in her Maggie Sullivan mysteries series. The series follows a woman P.I. in Dayton, Ohio, from the end of the Great Depression through the end of WW2.
Other novels by the author, in various genres, have been translated, optioned for film and condensed for magazine publication. Some were written under the name Mary Ruth Myers. She has a bachelor of journalism degree from the University of Missouri J-School and worked on daily papers in Wyoming, Michigan and Ohio. She also spent five years working as a ventriloquist.
Ruth enjoys reading, baking and playing Irish traditional tunes on the concertina with more enthusiasm than skill. She and her husband live in Ohio where they serve as domestic staff to a very pampered cat.
