Ruby Dhal is a poetess, fiction-writer and bestselling author of two poetry books with a goofy laugh, a powerful and opinionated voice, a constant habit of tripping and falling over furniture and two degrees in Philosophy. After losing her mother at the tender age of 4, Ruby turned to books as a form of escapism. Spending several years reading about story-worlds led Ruby to pick up a pen and create a world of her own. Ruby's life-affirming poems about love, heartbreak and healing are deeply appreciated by a generous readership on Instagram. Ruby has written articles for various online magazines and she was one of only 7 South-Asian women writers in the world to be featured in the Harper's Bazaar Writer Hotlist in 2017. Ruby was brought up and resides in London and is presently writing her debut novel which she hopes will break down the negative impact of cultural identification.
