Read full description of the books:
"My name is Ruby.""This book is about me."
It tells the deeply hideous story
of what happens when my mother dies
and I'm dragged three thousand miles away
from my gorgeous boyfriend, Ray,
to live in L.A. with my father,
who I've never even met
because he's such a scumbag that he
divorced my mom before I was born.
The only way I've ever even "seen" him
is in the movies,
since he's this megafamous actor
who's been way too busy
trying to win Oscars
to even visit me "once" in fifteen years.
Everyone loves my father.
Everyone but me.

Read information about the authorI was born in Boston and overprotected in the nearby suburb of Newton. I thought I would be an artist when I grew up. I loved sneaking upstairs to a tiny room in our attic, where I could while away the hours drawing pictures of dinosaurs. The summer I turned seventeen, I fell in love with making animated films (not to mention at least a couple of boys). Soon after, I enrolled in Hampshire College and began teaching animation to children all across the country, while I earned my degree, a B.A. in filmmaking and photography. I went on to teach film at Harvard University, which was pretty astonishing, considering I was only a few years older than my students and I probably couldn't have even gotten in to the school if I had applied! Then, I moved to Hollywood to work for a famous movie director as his personal assistant. But I was fired after a month, because I wasn't very good (okay, I was very bad) at bringing coffee to people. I decided to stay in Hollywood anyhow, and found work as an animator, and then as a production assistant on a Woody Allen movie called Interiors. After that, I worked as a still photographer and script supervisor on Ron Howard's first film, Grand Theft Auto.
Eventually, I became a film editor, cutting TV shows like L.A. Law and movies like the cult classic, River's Edge - which had Keanu Reeves' first love scene in it! I also edited a trailer for a movie called Urban Cowboy, with John Travolta sitting right there next to me, making suggestions. Then I met my future husband, Bennett, at a taping of a show called Mork and Mindy. Soon after, we got married and I gave birth to our beautiful daughter, Ava. I wanted to be able to spend lots of time with her, so I stopped editing. I ended up starting a small hand-painted baby clothes company instead, selling my wares to Neiman Marcus and Macy's. This was perfect, because I could paint the clothes while Ava took her naps.
But after awhile, I got tired of trying to come up with one more adorable dino design, or another darling little bunny. I needed to find something new to satisfy my creative urges. By then I had a wonderful son, too, named Jeremy. And since I loved reading to both my children, I decided to try my hand at writing books for kids. So I enrolled in a poetry class at UCLA, taught by Myra Cohn Livingston. It was Myra who set me on the path to writing my first book, Stop Pretending: What Happened When My Big Sister Went Crazy.
When I'm not writing, or traveling around the country speaking about writing and giving poetry writing workshops, I bake, dance, read, worry and hunt for buried treasure at flea markets and in vintage clothing stores. I live with my family, twenty-six blocks from the beach, not far from Hollywood.
