Author bio

Hello, I'm Ruth. Nice to meet you! :) Thanks for reading my work, and Happy Holidays! :) Additional info: My favorite things to do are: Teaching, reading, writing, watching t.v. shows/movies, and aerobics. In writing, I am currently working on: Revising short stories published on Reedsy, and working on new ideas for short work. (I've got a novel brewing, but I think the writing of it will have to wait till February.) I am currently reading: 1. Reedsy friends' work 2. 'The Resurrectionist: The Lost Work of Dr. Spencer Black I am currently watching: 1. Anything funny that's on British telly. (a Netflix t.v. show in the horror genre) 2. 'Curb your Enthusiasm' I love this show because it's funny, and it has great writing. (Additional note: In the early seasons, I find the way that Cheryl is written to be problematic. In far too many sitcoms, the lead female character is written as someone who prevents the lead male character from living a joyful life. This is not true, and comedy should mirror real life.) Personal philosophy: "If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain." (Emily Dickinson)
