2015 and 2016 IPPY Award Winner.
2016 National Indie Excellence Awards Finalist.
Rue is an award-winning fiction author and in her limited spare time, she reads voraciously. Her love of the written word led to the pursuit of a B.A. in Journalism from Pepperdine University in California and a lifelong passion for writing. Her respect for indigenous cultures, oral traditions, and the seasonal magick of nature inevitably brought her work to the world of fantasy. The story of Flynn Hawthorn has been part of her heart and imagination for nearly a decade.

When the story of the Hutchinson sisters started taking shape I immediately pictured part of their struggle taking place against the back drop of snow and ice...Duluth has that in spades. I also love hills, elevation changes and water—the setting gives the characters lots of interesting venues.(less)

Step 1: I refuse to acknowledge its existence.

Step 2: I complete my research before I start writing, so I have the information I need at my fingertips.

Step 3: I complete my outline before I start writing, so I have a place to go if I start to lose my way.

Step 4: This is the most important Step. I create my writing schedule, I post it on my office door (for accountability) and I sit down and write every day.

Everyone has their own magic formula - this is just the one that works for me.(less)

“Winter teetered on the verge of succumbing to the returning sun, but today the breeze still preferred the touch of snowflakes”
Rue, An Average Curse

“The only thing you must do, flesh-child, is die. The rest is but a trick of light in the foam on the waves.”
Rue, An Average Curse

“Advice? I don’t have advice. Stop aspiring and start writing. If you’re writing, you’re a writer. Write like you’re a goddamn death row inmate and the governor is out of the country and there’s no chance for a pardon. Write like you’re clinging to the edge of a cliff, white knuckles, on your last breath, and you’ve got just one last thing to say, like you’re a bird flying over us and you can see everything, and please, for God’s sake, tell us something that will save us from ourselves. Take a deep breath and tell us your deepest, darkest secret, so we can wipe our brow and know that we’re not alone. Write like you have a message from the king. Or don’t. Who knows, maybe you’re one of the lucky ones who doesn’t have to.”
Alan Wilson Watts
