Ruth Partis has been writing stories and poems most of her life, but her work was only suitable for publication with the invention of the word processor and the spell check. Now retired from her work in education and journalism she is discovering the joys of being a grandmother. Ruth has a very supportive husband and three grown-up children of whom she is justifiably proud. She has lived on the Isle of Sheppey for more than forty years, but can still get lost due to her appalling sense of direction.
‘Numbers’ is the third book of short stories and poems written by Ruth Partis. Most of the contents are published for the first time, but there a few favourites deemed worthy of another view. Ruth’s stories tend to be very short enabling the reader to re-read them easily or indeed read them aloud to someone else.
