About the Author
Ruthanne Nopson was born in a small mining camp in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. She started the first grade as a five-year-old. Back then, there were not enough children for kindergarten and first grade. She remembers being excited because now she could learn to read and write.
Ruthanne’s father was a miner, so they moved to many camps. To keep busy she learned that the library could be your best friend. She spent hours reading and looking at books. She won a writing contest in her seventh grade. She finished high school in Washington State. The only class she knew she could get an A was English Literature.
She and her husband raised three children. She made sure they liked to read and write their own story. Ruthanne has a great passion for writing children’s books. They have children, many grandchildren, and great-grandchildren who give her inspiration.
