I love challenging perceptions, encouraging my readers to see the good in people they may otherwise judge harshly, and challenging people to view the world in complex shades of gray. The Broken Series is dedicated to anyone who has ever been broken. Everyone is broken in some small way. If you aren't, you will be eventually. It is not a bad thing. It is through that brokenness that we find the courage and strength to do great things.

Author Biography

I live in Northern Virginia with my football-crazed husband, two beautiful daughters, and two psychotic Shih Tzus. I teach courses in international relations, peacekeeping, and human security at the American Military University. Reading has long been my passion, so I belong to not one but two book clubs, which I fondly refer to as my "good girl bookclub" and my "bad girl bookclub." Suffice it to say the "bad girl bookclub" is the one that read Fifty Shades of Gray.

I've been writing for as long as I can remember. In my childhood, I loved writing poetry, song lyrics, and short stories. Somehow, this morphed into supreme court briefs, government reports, congressional bills, journal articles, and op ed pieces as I grew older. And now? I'm writing romantic suspense novels. Shockingly, I think I've found my niche! Thanks for reading The Broken Series. I love hearing from my readers, so please stop by ksruff.com, drop me a note, and let me know what you think about the books!
