    Ruth Quayle (Author)
    When Ruth's three children aren't sending footballs whizzing past her ears and persuading her that sweets are healthy, they're saying funny things that she scribbles down and turns into stories.

    Ruth used to be a writer and sub-editor on national newspapers and glossy magazines, but she's much happier working from home as a freelance writer.
