Welcome to the official site of Ruthanne Reid

Welcome From the Far-Off Year of 2018!

You must be one of those brave folks who likes to start a journey from the very start.

I’ve removed a lot of my more absurd posts over the years, but I left quite a few from ye olde Livejournal days because I feel it’s important to show how people grow and change – and that you can genuinely start anywhere on your path to becoming an author.

Also, these were some damn good memories.

Anyway, I won’t blame you if you get sick of the drivel and hop back to the newer posts. You’re welcome to peruse. If you have any questions, let me know.


A three-times bestselling author, Ruthanne Reid has led a convention panel on world-building, taught courses on plot and character development, and been the keynote speaker for the Write Practice Retreat. Author of two series with five books and fifty-plus short stories, Ruthanne has lived in her head since childhood, when she wrote her first story about a pony princess and a genocidal snake-kingdom and used up her mom’s red typewriter ribbon in the process. When she isn’t reading, writing, or reading about writing, Ruthanne enjoys old cartoons with her husband and two cats, and dreams of living on an island beach far, far away. P.S. Red is still her favorite color.
