Hi I'm Ruby. As a child I had a gift in canoeing. I was forced to drop it because there was no future in it so came to the UK and joined the Royal Shakespeare Company followed by 25 years on BBC and Channel Four writing and performing my own shows. I did many one-woman shows many directed by Alan Rickman, edited "Absolutely Fabulous" and have given birth to a book "Sane New World" a manual for 21st century living. My next book will be published by Penguin in January 2016 - it's called
A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled. I still pine for canoeing and hope to return to it soon.
