About The Author

Ruby Peru Stell tore “write” out of a history book, quill and parchment clutched in hand. Now, writes creative nonfiction with a twist of rhyme. Hitchhiked across North America with baby daughter, Heidi, after graduating from University of Oklahoma, BFA, 1978. Got lost in Austin, until embarking on a pilgrimage to the Emerald City, Seattle. Taught Fine Arts to Severely Behavioral Disordered high school students while working on a sodden Master’s degree. Wrung it out, and began teaching writing at Seattle Community College, while juggling twin grandsons, Max and Mars, and a large red dog named Blue. Floated back to the sunny beach of Port A in 2002, via Peru. Retired in 2008, and began writing while fighting the great depression. Tit for Tat that’s where I’m at. Inspiration arrives when I hear the beat of wings of my Blue/Gold Macaw, Pico. Enjoy! Contact Info: Ruby Peru Stell rstell@rocketmail.com 1301 High Mesa Dr. Wimberley Tx 78676 (361-944-8500)
