RUTH WADE biography:
Ruth Wade was born in Sheffield Park station house on the cusp of the Bluebell Line becoming a heritage steam railway. Her formative years continued to be influenced by the past as she was brought up in the seaside town which can boast England’s first ever motorcar races, and the art deco splendour that is the De La Warr Pavilion.
A part-time lecturer in creative writing for Cambridge colleges and academies, her two great passions are longbow archery and the Argentine Tango. Sadly, she is not nearly as accomplished at either as she’d like.
She is proud to be a Champion for the eradicating illiteracy campaign: Teach a friend to read.
Ruth Wade is also the author of the May Keaps historical crime series (writing as BK Duncan).
