I have a pueblo-style house in Santa Fe, which resembles the other ginger-bread, neighborhood dwellings. My eclectic art hangs on the walls from; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Petra, Jordan; the mountainous cliffs of Meteora, in Greece; my cherished souvenirs when I had the time and money to travel. Privileged for the solitude, I settle deeply into my story. Living large then; yet here, my enchantment remains.
I was actually born back east; in Knoxville, Tennessee. My mother raised her four daughters substantially, even on a shoestring budget. Well educated herself, college was offered. Soon I had sprouted my wings from Centre College, a liberal arts school in Kentucky, and was heading west to the coast where I eventually graduated from the University of Southern California—Pharmacy School! Admittedly, not the usual choice for a writer, but in New Mexico my inspiration was to write, and my book became my passion. Earning my literary chops under years of study with the best editors in Santa Fe, I can now take pride in my creation.
Please enjoy my Spiritual-Fantasy; slowly, reverently, and with love—C.L.Rugg.
