Biography

Ruth Ford Elward, Author of Diverse Mysteries. “I love mysteries, if you love variety in your mysteries, then we’re soul mates. My greatest joy is to be able to lose myself in my writing and give my readers an array of suspense filled Mysteries and Thrillers. These include plots against a government, solving crimes, creating black op missions, finding a long lost artifact that could change the world or thwarting a plot to regain a kingdom. A variety that will satisfy the most discriminating palette for mysteries.”

After years in the business world between managing a division for an international financial printing company, modeling in her spare time and later to performing esthetic and laser treatments, Ruth found her real passion lies in the world of writing for which she does full time.

“Writing keeps the mind sharp and gives me the opportunity to exercise my imagination to engage the reader,” offers Ruth, who lives in Colorado and enjoys biking, golfing and ballroom dancing in her spare time.
