I was born in New York City in 1940, and I grew up in Alliance, Ohio, but it wasn’t until I had graduated from St. John’s College and married Bill Porter that I moved to Vermont. That was when I felt as though I had really come home. Books were important in my family. My mother was one of the daughters of Max Perkins, the editor of Hemingway and Fitzgerald. I always read a lot, but I never thought I wanted to write until I had lived in Vermont for a few years. I loved the land and the weather and the people, and I wanted to tell about all of it. If my novels make you feel as though you have spent some time in Vermont, then I have succeeded. There is more about me and about my books on my website, www.ruthkingporter.com

Mother's Day is coming. We were all given some Unexpected Grace by our beloved mothers. Now it's time to give something in return. The perfect gift, I guess, would be spending some time together. Reading a book about rural Vermont life to/with her couldn't be cozier. Check it out at http://barnothingbooks.com/shop.
