My name is Ruthie Jones.

I’m one of the precious ordinary;
I’m a dead-eye shot, shooting.


When I’m not working full time as an editor at a global research company, playing in one of my weekly pool (pocket billiards) leagues, or hanging out with my husband, I’m reading and writing. Lately, I’ve been reading and writing a lot. I participate in Goodread’s online reading challenge and Book Riot’s Read Harder Challenge (see my personal progress here), and I endeavor to write a review (impression) for every book I read (many of which are highlighted on this blog). My current writing project is a suspense fiction that takes place in a small town in the Texas Hill Country.

Like many of you, I’m galloping through life with a smile on my face and an eye on the everlasting prize. Along the way, I’m trying to understand the people with whom I share this earthly space.

My goal is to embark on an anthropological writing and reading endeavor.

As a natural observer, I’m interested in many subjects and in all walks of life. The novel I am currently writing deals with people in positions of authority struggling to uphold law enforcement when the situation may call for the kind of mercy found outside of the law.
