Ruthie Davis grew up in Southeast Asia. She attended boarding school during the Vietnam War. The school was moved several times to other countries from its original location in the Vietnam highlands. She’s written a novel of historical fiction surrounding some of the locations and events she experienced. Adding one of her loves, time travel, plus some fantasy and a cast of fictional characters results in an intriguing story for middle grade readers that’s been described as “weird and cool”.
Ruthie’s day job is working as the president and chief operating officer of a behavioral health counseling agency. She and her husband enjoy a similar history and have a remarkable son who, among other accomplishments, has served in the military. This touches a special place in the author’s heart as a result of those who rescued her and the entire boarding school in 1965 Vietnam.
