E. J. Ruek, pronounced “rook”, writes novels set in present day or the very near future, novels with just a nod of nerve-tingling what-if possibility.
E. J. Ruek—translating life into words without sacrificing the grimace and the giggle.
“In life, things are not always as they seem—not on the surface and not underneath. I like that. I like to write about that. Your auntie might not be that nice lady you always thought she was. In fact, she might be nicer. If fact, she might have hidden knowledge that you never dreamed someone like her could harbor, much less use. She has secrets, and those secrets drive the neighbors crazy, because they just ‘know’ that something isn’t quite as ‘normal’ as it should be. …And it isn’t.
“You just never know. You can never assume. Because, when you do, things happen.”
