"I have always loved stories. I grew up reading everything I could get my hands on and scribbling down bits and pieces of my own. The day I realised I wanted to be a writer was the day the world changed for me."
I love to tell stories with my art, creating scenes which are windows into another world, other lives and places. My first book "The City of Silver Light" was published in 2012. This is the first book in "The Bridges Trilogy" and the cover artwork is completely my own. You can find it at:www.haguepublishing.com/shop/
I have a Bachelor of Arts/Diploma of Arts in Professional Writing and Editing. I have had illustrations published in several textbooks for primary school children and love to illustrate my own work.
"Sand Dog" is my first picture book and is available from Amazon at www.amazon.com/Sand-Dog-Ruth-F…
I hope to write and illustrate many more books in the future. In the meantime, welcome to my DeviantArt gallery!
