Ruth McLeod-Kearns is a novelette author whose heavily descriptive writing reflects her experiences with motherhood, trauma nursing and heart-breaking loss.

Born in Colorado in 1963, McLeod-Kearns and her family often relocated throughout the United States until settling in California’s Central Valley.

Graduating from Southern Adventist University’s nursing program, McLeod-Kearns’ speciality in trauma led her career, spanning over 25 years, through some of the largest emergency departments in the nation.

Although her nursing career ended in 2009 following a foot injury, McLeod-Kearns finally had the time to pursue her dreams of becoming an author.

Since June of 2013, McLeod-Kearns has self-published 9 novelettes through 5 major retailers

“In the beginning we start with roses. The king’s flower right? Only they wilt in less than a day, especially when exposed to the elements. But Carnations? Oh, what a beautiful flower. They come in every color. True, some are painted, but that doesn’t mean they are less beautiful, and they never wilt.”
Ruth McLeod-Kearns, Carnations Never Wilt

“Becky was a weed.  Nobody ever wanted them taking over the bigger, prettier plants.  People went to all extremes to make them go away.  They sprayed poison, pulled until the roots gave way. They felt only like their garden was complete when every tendril was extirpated.  This was how she felt from birth.”
Ruth McLeod-Kearns, Weeds

“The morning was brisk and the coffee was hot and roasted with little gurgles in the room. Rosie hadn’t moved, but she let out a tiny snore every now and again that made everything perfect.”
Ruth McLeod-Kearns, Blood Mother

The deeper the grief, the closer is God!”
