About the Author: Ruth Fitzgerald
Ruth Fitzgerald was born in Bridgend, South Wales. She grew up in a happy, chaotic family with far too many brothers. When she was six years old she wrote her first story, Mitzi the Mole Gets Married and immediately announced she wanted to be a writer. Her teacher immediately advised her that writing was a hobby and she needed to get a proper job. Since then she has tried twenty-three proper jobs, including teaching English in Japan, being a social worker and selling candles on a market stall. But really the only thing she likes doing is writing. She has learned a lot from these experiences, mainly never to trust a teacher. Ruth lives in Suffolk with her family and five chickens. They are all very supportive of her writing, although the chickens dont say a lot. Ruths children agreed to give her peace and quiet to write as long as she bought them a hamster on publication, at the time this seemed like a good idea but she is now regretting such a rash promise. Ruth is currently studying for an MA in Creative Writing at Manchester Metropolitan University
