Introduction Ruth Logan Herne likes to be called “Ruthy”, she loves God, her family, her country, coffee and chocolate, thinks snakes should always live outside, possums should leave the cat food on the side porch alone and all grandchildren should be named for her. A mother and grandmother to seriously smart young people, she writes stories of humor, hope and faith, embracing God’s love and life’s opportunities. Now an established author with Love Inspired Books, her North Country books secured the coveted 4 ½ Star Romantic Times rating and Philosophy of Romance named Made to Order Family their “Book of the Year” for 2010. Her 2011 series is set in Allegany County, NY, one of the most gorgeous places on Earth. All three books have received a 4-Star rating! Set in the foothills of the Allegheny range, a Brigadoon-type town is coaxed back to life through love, romance, hard work and a strengthening economy. These are stories of new beginnings and righting old wrongs... Ruthy is also proud that "Winter's End" has been nominated for the prestigious Carol Award for Christian fiction AND that "Winter's End" received the Holt Medallion Award of Merit for best first book. Amazing.
Interests Romance and chocolate, not necessarily in that order.
Favorite Movies Remember the Titans, It's a Wonderful Life, A&E's Pride and Prejudice (Colin Firth...Are ya' kiddin' me???), Independence Day, You've Got Mail, Anne of Green Gables (PBS)
Favorite Music Today's country. Reba, because it would JUST BE WRONG not to put her on the top of the list, oh my stars, I'm just sayin'!!! Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, Jimmy Wayne (love this guy), Sarah Buxton (wrote Stupid Boy for Keith Urban), Sugarland, Lonestar and George Strait with a big, ol' hug to Anne Murray.
Favorite Books I love all the "Seekers" work, a great bunch of Christian romance and suspense authors. Wonderful! And Karen White, Lisa Wingate, Deb Smith rank high on my list, but I love a lot of great authors, too many to list! Not a big fan of Shakespeare. Love James Michener's stuff. Epic sagas. All that warmth and drama. All time favorite book is probably Sweet Hush by Deb Smith. I think I was destined to be Southern and got dropped into upstate NY by a directionally challenged angel.
