Ruth was blogging about the re-release of her novel The Woman Before which is out on 31st October 2013. The book features a new cover and stacks of added content including a new chapter and author q&a.
'The idea of using the stalker theme came to me one snowy night in 2005 as I lay in hospital having just given birth to my son. I remembered that my mother had been in hospital at the same time as her ex-boyfriend’s new wife. After birth, women are often exhausted and emotional, and it occurred to me that seeing your partner’s ex at such a time could trigger all sorts of feelings. Especially if you suspected your partner of still loving her… The idea took hold, and the novel was born.'
