Ilie Ruby is an artist and author of the novel, The Language of Trees (Avon HarperCollins July 20, 2010). She grew up in an artistic family and learned to write and paint every day, "as though a prayer". Now she does both professionally, dividing her time between family, creative work, book signings, and gallery shows, most recently donating her painting "Hope" to the Concord Art Association's Paint the Town exhibit.
