Rue graduated from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, with a degree in Journalism. Her intimate knowledge of the Midwestern United States, the inordinate amount of time she spent in its churches' pews and her unique parentage make her an expert on life after religion. Having moved 17 times by the time she graduated from high school Rue has seen more than her share of the Great Plains. She never stayed in one place long enough to make lasting human friends. Her best friends were all characters from her beloved books; and the love of reading led to a lifelong passion for writing.
I love reading ALMOST as much as I love writing. I enjoy cooking - but mostly when I need to procrastinate. I'm a huge fan of roller derby and skated with the Dirty Verde Roller Derby. My most useless hobby is planning exotic vacations that I will never take!
