About Ruby

Ruby Barrett writes steamy romances about big feelings, featuring but not limited to: soft boys, angry girls who are secretly soft, and hot sex. Ruby is inspired by the intimate details of everyday life and always being the thirstiest friend in the group chat. Mutual pleasure, pining, and healing are common themes in her romances.


Before she was a romance author, Ruby worked as a groom on a horse farm, a cigarette package warning label researcher for the Canadian Cancer Society, an essayist for a millennial parenting website, and a matchmaker where she was really good at meeting new clients but terrible at creating matches. 

When she's not writing, Ruby can be found at the gym, lifting heavy things and battling toxic masculinity one gym bro at a time. And, of course, she is always reading romance. She is a bi woman who lives in Ottawa, Canada where she gets her own happily ever after with her husband and daughter. 

Ruby is the author of: HOT COPY and THE ROMANCE RECIPE, from Carina Press and Carina Adores; and, the short erotic fiction, "Our Fragile Mouths" featured in The Big Book of Orgasms, Vol. 2 from Cleis Press. 

Her third book, THE FRIENDSHIP STUDY, also from Carina Adores releases on February 13, 2024. Her next erotic short story, "The Juice On Her Chin" featured in Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Vol. 9 releases December 5, 2023.
