About the author:
A history geek since childhood, Ruth Hartman Berge enjoyed listening to her parents, grandparents and aunts and uncles talk about the “good ol’ days” when Palm Beach County was mostly cow pastures, farm lands and pineapple fields. A member of Mensa, she is a former member of the board of directors of the Writers’ Network of South Florida and also was a columnist for Seabreeze Publications, Inc. where her column, The Florida You Don’t Know, enjoyed a wide and loyal readership. Currently, in addition to working on her first mystery novel, she writes a blog at ruththewriter.blogspot.com about whatever grabs her attention. Oftentimes, the topic is some little-known fact about her Palm Beach County surroundings.
Ruth was born in West Palm Beach and spent most of her life in Palm Beach County. Aside from forays to Tallahassee, where she graduated from Florida State University, Ruth’s home base has remained in the county she finds so fascinating. She has two wonderful children and is currently owned by three cats, one of whom is disabled and was the inspiration for her children’s book, Betty Tales: The True Story of a Brave Bobblehead Cat. A voracious reader, she enjoys writing in several different genres but finds herself drawn time and time again to stories that evoke the forgotten paradise of the Florida that existed in the past.
