Ruth S. Hamilton was born in Swansea, Wales and emigrated to South Africa as a child, where she still lives.

She is the author of "Beautiful - Simple, everyday advice for improving your self-esteem and living the life you deserve" - now available for upload on Amazon.

A social crusader and single parent to a teenage daughter, she founded The Pretty Awesome Project in 2013, an initiative designed to raise awareness about healthy self-esteem among teenage girls and young women. Writing 'Beautiful' was an extension of this project, and a way for Ruth to achieve a long-standing dream.. to write a book.

Hi Temple,
Thanks for your kind words and good wishes. I think being a journalist in South Africa is an even tougher gig, especially with all that's happening here at the moment! Because my book falls under the category of 'self-help', I have found that good old-fashioned networking works best for me. When I speak to people one on one about the book, and really connect with them on a personal level, that's when I see sales increase. However, I never wrote the book with sales in mind. I just had a message that was demanding to be written. I believe that the book will find its way to those who most need to read it, and that makes my heart sing! (less)
