Ruth Welsby was born just outside Liverpool, England, and spent most of her working life as a Nurse Manager, covering a variety of disciplines, from teaching to Stroke and Palliative care, both for the NHS and in Private care. After she retired in 2013, she fulfilled a lifelong ambition to write a book. She now lives in the small village of Helsby in Cheshire, four miles from Frodsham where most of her books are set.

Ruth launched her first novel GRACE ROSCOE under the name of RCWelsby in 2014 just after turning seventy. The book was self-published in the UK through the Kindle Direct Publishing programme on Amazon. Although it didn’t set the world on fire, it did fire up Ruth’s love of writing. Since then Ruth has changed the genre she writes in from the true historic romance of GRACE ROSCOE to the dark side of serial killers let loose in a quiet market town.

UNHOLY REVENGE was published in July 2016 and DEATH BY REVENGE was published in October 2017. Ruth is now contemplating the third book of the REVENGE series and hopes to publish in the Spring of 2018.
