I’m happy to tell you that tomorrow my Featured Guest is Lois Ruby, a very gifted and accomplished author and lecturer. I was delighted when Lois agreed to appear and I know you’ll enjoy her remarks. Be sure to read her tomorrow. For now, here is a brief bio provided by Lois. It’s much too modest but here is a link that will tell you much more about her. www.loisruby.com
After reading a thousand books in her young adult department of the Dallas Public Library, Lois decided she could write the stories herself. Since her first book was published in 1977, 13 more have seen print, and she’s no longer a working librarian. Her time is divided among family, research, writing, and visiting schools to energize young people about the ideas in books. Lois shares her life with her psychologist husband, Dr. Tom Ruby, in Albuquerque, as well as their three sons and daughters-in-law, and five amazing grandchildren, who are scattered around the country and – for this year – in India.
