About Ruthie Spoonemore

Ruthie Spoonemore, an artist, blogger, and writer, lives in the Pacific Northwest with her fiancé Greg and their rat terrier Harlo, (having recently lost her cat Sasha after 19 years of companionship). She enjoys spending time at the Pacific coast. Her first visit to the Pacific Ocean opened up a ‟yearning in my soul that I didn't know existed”. For now, her yearly visits ‟feeds my soul and keeps my dreams alive”.

One of those dreams was to be a writer. For years she toyed with the idea of writing a book. Growing up with rheumatoid arthritis, was the inspiration to finally follow her passion. Signing up for an online writing course gave her the skills and confidence to achieve that goal. Diagnosed at Seventeen is her story.
