Writing from the Heart ~ Ruth Johnston

BlogLand truly is a magical land, there really is no other place quite like it. When you make the decision to become one of it's citizens by starting a blog and staking a little piece of virtual real-estate in this infinite land, you have no idea how you will touch the lives of others or how they in turn will touch your life!

Ruth Johnston, blog author of Life the Universe and all that's in it, is one of the special people in Blogland, no topic is taboo. Some posts you read will make you pause to really think about life, the universe and as her blog title says "and all that's in it". Her raw writing on life captivates you and when a post comes to and end .. it leaves you wanting more! Ruth is also an accomplished Poet, and some of her poetry can be found in a small piece of virtual BlogLand real-estate known as My Own Poetry Corner.

Having been a regular reader of both her blogs for the past couple of years, when Ruth announced that she was taking her most personal work to date and publishing it, to say I was excited for her, would be an understatement ~ I quickly put in my pre-order for her book.

As a fan of her writing, I was honoured and humbled when asked if I would preview the book before its official release. I received an email with the complete contents of the book. The poetry is heart felt, and the photography absolute mastery! To say I highly recommend it is an ABSOLUTE YES!  I am awaiting my own hard copy and already known a few more copies will be ordered as gifts.

I invite you to step into the world of Ruth Johnston with the trailer for her first (of many) books/novels~
