Born and raised in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, Ruth moved to Scotland in the 1990s where she worked as a Regulation Analyst in the energy sector. An Open University course in the arts, however, paved the way to her studying English and History at the University of Dundee. After completing a post-graduate degree in Women, Culture and Society, she stepped out of that glorious bubble of learning and back into the world of earning a crust.
Fast forward a further decade and Ruth is now working full-time as an author; frequently lost in a world of make-believe.
Her debut novel 'Siege of the Northland' is an action-packed fantasy adventure, which tells the story of a fearless young warrior called Jesyka: the Northland’s one true heir of the ancient Tribe of Skea.
