Ruth Frances Long

Ruth Frances LongRuth Frances Long always had a thing for fantasy, romance and ancient mysteries. The combination was bound to cause trouble. In university she studied English Literature, History of Religions and Celtic Civilisation, which just compounded the problem.  She lives in Wicklow and works in a specialised library of rare and unusual books.

Her novels The Scroll Thief: a Tale of Ithian and Soul Fire are available from Samhain Publishing. Her Tales of the Holtlands series include The Wolf’s Sister, The Wolf's Mate and The Wolf's Destiny.

Her YA dark fantasy The Treachery of Beautiful Things is coming out in August 2012 from Dial Books for Young Readers.
