About the Author...
When author, Ruth A. Douthitt completed her first book in 2008, she had no idea how her life was about to change...

After working on her book for over 20 years, Ruth saw her dreams come true thanks to OakTara Publishing.

Her first book, The Dragon Forest, was released in 2011. After that, Ruth began speaking to local students about her writing journey, her artwork, and what it means to be a writer. 

The second book in her Dragon Forest trilogy, The Dragon Forest II, was released in the fall of 2013. The final book in the series, The Dragon Forest III was released in 2015.

Her next series, The Children Under the Ice, The Children in the Garden, and The Children of Manor House, was completed in 2017. This series was awarded the Moonbeam Children's Books Award BRONZE medal for Best Book Series. 

She released Book One of The Dragon Forest spin-off series, The Elves of Vulgaard, in October of 2017. 

Ruth lives in Arizona with her husband, son, and their little dog.
