Bio:

Ruby Walker is eighteen, and is not depressed anymore. She got pretty tired of saying that, but she wrote and illustrated a book about it, so it’s kind of hard to avoid at this point. Ruby writes for fellow professional over-thinkers and imperfect slobs. She likes to brighten people’s days and bully her friends into respecting themselves more.

Yes– to Ruby’s horror, she’s turned from a local disaster into a mom friend.
