Picture Ruby with her hair on
fire! Yup, that's her every morning when she bounds out of bed and
heads for her home office. Ruby thanks her lucky stars that she's a full-time writer and a part-time matchstick. Although, there is a hint of a bulldog somewhere in there, too.
Once she sticks her teeth into something, there's no turning back
until it works. Her husband says she reminds him of that little
mouse who stares up into the sky at a swooping eagle (this would be the mouse with his middle finger up) daring that darn bird, and just about anyone else, to screw up her day when she's got writing on the brain.
Ruby loves to write, plain and simple. So much so that she took a leap of faith in herself and quit her
"professional" job, stuck her butt in front of a computer, and finally discovered what brings her true happiness in the wilds of Minnesota.
Some might think that the life of a writer is glamorous and enviable. This is what Ruby has to say about that: "Glamorous? Think of me in sweats and an old t-shirt just beneath that flaming head of mine, typing with one hand and beating out the fire with the other. Enviable? Most times my
"new" job consists of long hours of dedication and damn hard work, cramping leg muscles from sitting too long, and a backside that for some reason is widening by the week. But I wouldn't change my life for the world."
Most people who fantasize about strange people and occurrences are sitting on the sixth floor of some psychiatric hospital. Not Ruby—she gets paid for it!
