I have worked as a librarian in a Catholic girls’ high school, raised two children, run for public office, taught Torah at a Hebrew school and served the causes of truth and grammar as a contributing editor at Vermont’s alternative weekly newspaper, Seven Days. I grew up in Montclair, New Jersey, and also spent part of my childhood in Paris. Since then I’ve lived in Los Angeles and Burlington, Vermont. I now live with my husband and write full time in Rhode Island. I recently completed a novel for adults.

And if that happened, maybe it would lead to YY. And that scene might involve ZZ." I type as fast as I can, putting down whatever comes to mind, and usually (but not always), I end up tricking myself into writing.(less)
Ruth Horowitz Playing with words. I love language.
