I live in the Blue Mountains in Australia.

For a raft of reasons, you won’t find a current photograph of me here unless I’m face down in a sand-dune or a shadow caught in the frame. Ruby P is a treasured family name rather than my own.

This drawing, done by a young visitor to my home has been on my fridge for a while. As with many images on the internet I do of course appear younger and better looking than I am in real life.

Special thanks to Beth Norling for her beautiful illustrations and Eben Hale for his work on the web design.
