Author Ruth Remington is also an abstract/surrealist visual artist. Ruth's paintings can be found at Jeanne Frost Studio (www.jeannefrost.com)
Writing has been in her bones since the childhood fun of writing stories and plays to be directed and performed for audiences ranging from family gatherings to small town events. Writing now has become a passion along with her visual art, applying words like colours, shaping stories and poems, like notes to music.
These bones, quiet no longer, are using words to create all sorts of forms and shapes in her writing. Her stories and novels are alive with the magic of humour, myth, mystery and drama.
Her contemporary art work reflects her fascination with colour and abstract art. Originally from California, she lived in Australia from 2002 until 2014 as an adopted Aussie, based in Queensland, Australia. Now she continues her work in visual art at home again in California. Her unique technique, style and design in creating paintings, as well as indulging her passion for story telling, keeps her happily occupied.
With a background of formal education in fine art, art history, teaching metaphysics and psychology, Ruth brings skill and wisdom into her work.

Really enjoyed these stories. Eventhough each one is totally different, I found a spot in every story where I said, "oh my god, I can totally relate to that". I suggest you make yourself a hot chocolate or pour a glass of something and curl up with "Fifty Shades of Red" you won't be disappointed.

Downloading Fifty Shades of Red, I was not prepared for what I was about to read. I thoroughly enjoyed all the stories and verse. Although they're short, they are gripping and you find yourself wanting more - especially the last story. Ruth has a writing style which captures the imagination and intrigues in an Agatha Christie style. Her writings are easy to follow and her descriptions burst into reality as you visulaize through her eyes! This book is perfect for short trips. I'm looking forward to reading her novel about 'Tango'. Bring it on Ruth!
