Ruth Hatfield

Ruth Hatfield lives in Cambridge, however as a field archaeologist she is often to be found in far flung locations around the world. Ruth has been writing stories for most of her life, and what she loves most is to explore the way in which imagination gives limitless possibilities to make our own lives extraordinary. In her spare time she eats books, gallops around on horses, pedals around on her bike and tries not to break too many bones. 
Her debut novel, THE BOOK OF STORMS, is due to be published in the UK by Hot Key Books in November 2014 and in the US by Henry Holt in January 2015.
