Originally from a small town in southern Arizona, Ruth F. Simon escaped the desert to spend twelve years in the Seattle metro area. She and her wife transplanted to Brooklyn in 2006 so Ruth could study medieval British literature at New York University. In 2016, they relocated to northern New Jersey due to Brooklyn’s rising rents.
A fountain pen and hat fanatic, Ruth is a member of the Sisters in Crime, the National Writers Union, PEN America, and the Authors Guild. She is a proud graduate of the first-ever Golden Crown Literary Society Writing Academy program.
