About this author

Rucy Ban was born in 1978 and still continues to thrive. Ever since she first met Francine (the protagonist of her favorite novel, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn), Rucy fell in love with the written word. Rucy has a B-school degree in Marketing which she now puts to good use teaching lovable rowdy rogues and negotiating with her equally belligerent adolescent. In her previous avatar, she handled corporate communications for companies. At present, Rucy lives in Sao Paulo, travels often, speaks decent, if not quite fluent, Portuguese and really hates talking about herself in third person.

My second book in the First Things series – Wear You Down – is participating in an exclusive promotion being run by Smashwords at the RT Booklovers Convention 2014.

Free copies will be available for the lucky attendees in a goodie bag being provided by Smashwords!

So if you’re attending the convention, make sure you grab yourSmashwordsgoodie bag because there is a thumb drive waiting there inside...

“Never make eye contact with a stranger when you’re having a churro.”
Rucy Ban, All My Life

“Guys like him? They were the worst kind. All looks and no heart. Guys not like him? They were all deceiving, freaking asshats.”
Rucy Ban

“You know when you mix butt and Angel in the same sentence, it becomes an insult,” I say and take a big gulp from the can. With his back to me, he says, “Trust me, I would never dream of insulting your butt. I’m sure it’s better than anything I’m cooking out here.”
Rucy Ban, All My Life

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
Jack Kerouac, On the Road

“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.”
Nora Ephron

“There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don't need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain.”
Audrey Hepburn

“Most books on witchcraft will tell you that witches work naked. This is because most books on witchcraft were written by men.”
Neil Gaiman
