Meet Ruth Sanderson
There is a saying that when you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life. When you talk with Ruth Sanderson, you get the sense that her life fits that model.
Ruth is both an author and illustrator of more than 80 children's books. She is best known for her picture book stories, many which retell beloved fairy tales; but she also illustrates The Horse Diaries series for young readers.
It is hard to say which is Ruth's first love: reading fairy tales or horses. As a young girl, she loved to draw horses, and her first oil painting was of a horse. When you pick up one of Ruth's picture books, look closely - she tries to feature horses whenever she can.
