Ruth Munro


I am Australian widow, who doesn't like to admit her age, with four children and two step-children, living and working in China. I wasn’t always a writer. At different times, for reasons of acute boredom I have pursued a lot of entertaining professions and hobbies.
Personally if I lived my life the way I wanted I would spend all my time on my favorite activities. I like to catch up with family, write, read incessantly, watch movies, and study towards my Masters. Fortunately God insists I live a balanced life. So in my spare time I pray a lot, spend time with God, and work a full time job! I am so blessed because my genetics have meant I rarely need much sleep.
As to my career I am an experienced teacher, although I have also worked for Social Security as a clerk, sold roof tiles, been a wife and mother, worked as a Podiatrist and run various departments (or worked in them) in my church. I have always taught. I held my first unofficial math class on the steps of my neighbour’s house when I was about ten. I am also a jack of all trades since I’ve been a single mother since my husband died when we were both 34.
In 2012 after living in India for two months working at Asha Bhawan, God gave me the theme of this series, and revived my desire to create stories that amuse, but also make us think. I hope you enjoy them. I have just published the sixth book in the seven book series.
I am still struggling with the seventh book in the series which is mostly written. I am taking too long I know, but I really hate the subject matter. I will get it done by December even if I have to rewrite the middle and change some major plot events.
If you like my books please leave a review. If you hate them also write a review. Like all authors I will think about your criticisms, although like most of us I hate criticism! May my God bless you!

Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
I don't own a desk. I downsized when I moved to China, and haven't upsized yet! I'm willing to get a desk if that counts.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was a Pastor's kid (PK). Everyone knows that PK's lead terrible lives, and always rebel. I just forgot to read that information so I really didn't do that. I have moved frequently, and yeah some part's of my life weren't so enjoyable. I figure that's because I'm human. The good thing about being a PK is you can draw on lots of places to write book scenery because you have either lived there or driven through! Also PK's get to see a lot of people going through a lot of life experiences, good and bad, so I guess that can only add to your writing.
