Ruth was born in Carmarthen and grew up in Llandovery. She read English at Cardiff University and went into teaching, where she felt inspired as a young teacher to invent stories to entertain the children in her classes. An editor on a school visit heard one and offered to publish it. She has written for television and radio and published fiction, poetry and plays for children of all ages. She also appears as a visiting storyteller at Cardiff Castle. She teaches part-time in Penarth, where she lives with her partner, the illustrator Chris Glynn, and their son, Gethin.
Firefly Press will publish Ruth's Sci Fi novel Alien Rain in April.
