Dr. Ruth Baskerville, or Dr. Ruth, as she's affectionately called, is a Master Teacher and Administrator, having served forty-three years in education. Since retiring, she offers to public, private and charter schools proven strategies to turn failing schools into places of quality teaching and learning. Her lifelong love of teaching caused her to invest in the future by tutoring children from kindergarten through college. Students receiving help for the GED, SAT, ACT and grade level promotion have met with success, putting Dr. Ruth out of store front window until the next student clients appear.

Dr. Ruth always had a gift for communicating, whether in writing or public speaking. However, it was her husband of forty-five years who inspired her to write her first novel, HOODLESS KLAN, about a corrupt charter school. Sadly, Waverly Baskerville's untimely passing caused her to write her very sad and very humorous love story, FINDING HUMOR IN GRIEF.


She branched out to editing others' books, and ghostwriting books for those with great ideas who were unable to find their words. While volunteering with community organizations, she successfully secured grant funding to provide fine and performing arts programs for under-served children.


In the three years since Dr. Ruth became a widow, she has found a closer walk with God. She is writing the sequel to FINDING HUMOR IN GRIEF, called BEAUTY FOR ASHES. The inspiration for the title and the content of this new book is Isaiah 61:3, which reads:


            To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them

beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of

praise for the spirit of heaviness;  that they  might be called

trees  of  righteousness, the  planting of  the  LORD, that he

might be glorified. King James Bible


Dr. Ruth believes this Biblical passage represents her metamorphosis from being half of a dynamic couple, to being a strong woman with an abiding faith and a desire to share all of the talents God has bestowed upon her. BEAUTY FOR ASHES promises to be as funny and sad, as personal and candid as FINDING HUMOR IN GRIEF.
