Ru grew up in Indianapolis and Washington, DC.
After a decade of producing graphic novels and stories for an online audience, while dutifully preparing to attend law school, she ended up at the Savannah College of Art and Design on a full academic scholarship.
In 2013, Ru graduated magna cum laude with a BFA in Sequential Art and minors in Animation and Storyboarding.
Ru's client list includes VIZ Media, Scholastic, Boom! Studios, and the Hiveworks. Ru continues her humble dream of creating engaging tales with fun characters that will entertain a good portion of the population.
Her non-storytelling-specific personal interests include historical fiction, coffee-flavored ice cream, and fat birds.
Her NewsPrints graphic novel series was nominated for an Edgar, a Kids' Comic Award, and an Ignatz, and it's available at all places that sell books! Check out her Reuben-nominated webcomic Saint for Rent.
