Ruth Ford Elward

Biography

Ruth Ford Elward, author of diverse storytelling. I love suspense, action, adventure, mysteries and thrillers. If you love variety in your reading, then we’re kindred spirits. My greatest joy is to be able to lose myself in my writing and give readers an array of diverse, action filled stories. My stories 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 reader.

After years in the business world between managing a division for an international financial printing company, modeling in my spare time and later switching careers to performing aesthetic and laser treatments, I found a new passion in the world of writing.

I believe, writing keeps the mind sharp and gives me the opportunity to exercise my imagination to engage the reader.
