Ruby has always loved books. Reading them, writing them, as well as their smell, shape, and that sound they make when you turn a page or open a hardcover. 

When she's not writing about love in its many forms, she's reading. And when she's not doing either of those things you can find her on a spin bike, at her local box gym, drinking tea (never coffee), wearing pants (that aren't jeans), (re) watching The Office, or exploring museums (in other cities).


She lives in Ottawa, Canada with her baby (who she snuggles a lot), and her husband (who she kisses a lot). 



When a misunderstanding puts awkward intern Wes at odds with his brilliant beautiful boss Corrine, he ends up doing her dry cleaning and car washing instead of marketing projects. He’d hate her, if he didn’t admire her. She’d enjoy torturing him, if she didn’t think he was adork-able. And okay, hot. When they tumble into a secret affair, they’ll decide what they’re willing to sacrifice for love. A #MeToo relevant story, DEVIL WEARS PRADA meets DATING YOU/HATING YOU.



Coming Soon

A gender bend on the Robin Hood myth: in a devastated future New World, Iris Locke and Ethan May, must overcome the demons that haunt Iris's nightmares. After enduring months of torture at the hands of Robert Rain, the man who murdered her family, Iris – leader of the Highway Women – is taken in by the Green Mountain Horsemen. All she wants is to forget: her captivity and her past, but one Horseman, Ethan May, serves as a constant reminder of her loss - and a constant antagonist to her short temper. 

Ethan has always wanted to avenge his sister's murder. But when the Horsemen take a broken and abused Iris under their wing, Ethan finds there may be some things more important than vengeance: love. 

But, before Iris and Ethan can agree on a future together, Robert Rain hits closer to home than ever before and Iris must choose whether she will walk away to save herself or take a risk that could end her life and save Ethan's.
