About the Author
Ruby Garnett dropped out of A. Phillip Randolph HS in 1986 and joined a cult. After returning home in 1992, the experience led her to write her first book entitled, "Soul Sacrifice". She attended Bowie State University, majoring in Early Childhood/Special Education; minoring in Music. Born at Mt. Sinai hospital in NY to Donald (of Panamanian descent) and Jersey City naitive-Carolyn, Garnett and her brother David grew up in Jamaica, NY. The author's love of reading and writing were sparked by her mother who kept a stocked bookcase, and read to her children every night. In school, Garnett (the author's pen name) received honors in English, Reading and Creative Writing. The author enjoys the fact she and her brother and family live 10mins from eachother, and remains an avid writer/reader. She is married to her "heart" Stephen and resides in Prince George's County, MD, working as a Dental Receptionist. The next project is a fictional peice entitled "Never Again" and pt. two of "Soul Sacrifice" entitled "Picking Up a Thousand Pieces" are in progress . . .
