Ruth is an English artist - who fancies herself as a spiffy writer-in-the-making. Powered by dark chocolate, she heartily knits stories together with letters, pencils and paintbrushes. She is often snatched up by breezes and colors and pint-sized things – rocks, leaves, shells, bugs, feathers, and creatures. You may also find her gardening, hiking, wildly dancing, and riding her bike really fast in an odd looking helmet.

Long ago, after traversing much of the world, she fell captive to Colorado - and now breathes easy with an adorable husband, six marvelous kids between them (with handfuls of grand-babies!), a dog, and two cats.

Ruth is the illustrator of The Kissing Hand and Sassafras, is a member of SCBWI and the Colorado Watercolor Society

The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn
" 4.25 Stars Wow, I had to look up what "Mawkish" meant because it was used in a review on this book on Goodreads. It means "sentimental in a feeble or sickly way." and "saccharine" (like fake sugar) which mean "excessively sweet or sentimental.

"I loved the Kissing Hand. The watercolor illustrations are incredible, just the right amount of detail and still maintain the free flowing beauty of the medium. The story, while simple has a definite story arc which keeps the pages turning. Childr..." Read more of this review »
