All About Southern Ruby

June Love grew up in a small, rural community located in the Delta region of Mississippi. Surrounded by flat land and cotton, she entertained herself by making up stories.

She brought the world of make believe with her into her adult world where she writes character driven contemporary stories. Most of her stories revolve around modern, independent Southern women and the strong, stubborn men who are determined to win their hearts.

She lives with her husband and her rescued miniature schnauzer, Molly, who has reinforced June’s belief that miracles do happen and love does conquer all.

Early, On Time, or Late?

After a recent comment my husband made, I’ve been giving this a lot of thought. His comment, “You’re getting better about not running late.” It had almost become a joke at our house that he’d build in extra time to allow me to be ready “on time”. Only, that didn’t always work because I knew […]

Things My Mother Taught Me

My mother was a remarkable woman. I’m not just saying that because she was my mother, but because she really was an amazing woman. I’m so thankful to her for all the things she did for me and for my sisters, but more importantly, I’m grateful for the example she set for us. My mother […]

When buying a house, you often hear the words Location. Location. Location. This means the cost of a house will depend on the area in which it’s located. The more desirable the area, the higher the price. However, location pricing isn’t exclusive to house buying. It also affects hotels, airlines, and concert/sporting events. Location can […]

Tis the season…

 As I sit in my office, my gaze drifts to the window where snowflakes are swirling and dancing in the crisp December air. A roaring fire crackles from the stone fireplace in an attempt to tug my attention from my white pristine lawn to the glaring blank sheet of paper poised and ready in the […]

If I’d known then what I know now…

Each day in November, I witness many Facebook friends listing something for which they are thankful. I’ve never joined in this practice, because, simply put, I don’t remember to get on Facebook every day.  I am, however, very thankful for all the people I have in my life, including my Ruby sisters.  When I began […]

A Writer’s Emotions

A few mornings ago, I was taking my husband’s SUV to be serviced. Since I wait in the customer lobby for the work to be done, I like to be the first one in line. The service department opens their bay doors at 7:00, so it was early when I left the house. I was […]

Writing vs Social Media: Who’s winning the battle at your house?

Social media was winning at my house. To be fair, it wasn’t just social media. It was anything that required an internet connection. Email. Google searches. Yahoo News Stories. Amazon. It took my husband pointing out my poor time management skills for me to realize, and I mean ton-of-bricks-on-the-head realization,  how many of my writing […]
