Ruth Chesney lives in rural Northern Ireland with her husband, Samuel, a crazy Springer Spaniel and some hens. As someone who has always had a deep love for books, Ruth appreciates the simple pleasure of getting lost in a good story. A believer in the Lord Jesus Christ since the age of eleven, Ruth enjoys participating in the various activities of her local church. Her other interests include walking in the Irish countryside, growing vegetables and learning about other cultures and time periods. Her favourite food is chocolate and she prefers drinking milk to tea or coffee any day! Many of Ruth’s happy childhood memories involve time spent on her relatives’ dairy farms, and her love of livestock, and dairy cattle in particular, shows through in her writing.
