Memories Unwound

Ruby’s first book, Memories Unwound is a collection of free verse poems and prose. Each piece aims to go beyond words and reveal an emotion; love, pain or happiness and by the end of it, the prospect of attaining solace. Ruby uses ‘memories’ as a title to emphasise that it is universally relatable – as readers should find at least one or more pieces that will remind them of a previous experience that they have had, or emotion they have felt, hence becoming a memory that is unwound in this book.

Each piece aims to fuel the realisation of sentiments that fabricate our very being and, by the
end of the book, readers are shown the possibility of hope and redemption, closing old
chapters and moving on to make new memories.

A Handful of Stars

Ruby’s second book of poetry, A Handful of Stars is a journey of courage and resilience that readers take from falling to healing, realising along the way that the journey is not going to be easy.

Readers learn about the beauty and innocence of falling and they learn that healing is not a destination but a process, and this process can often last a lifetime. The book teaches that a
person’s softness is their biggest strength and having a big heart is not always a bad thing, and a glimmer of light can be found even in the darkest places.

A Handful of Stars is raw and unapologetic, soft and kind, reflective and inspirational all at
the same time.

My Hope for Tomorrow

Ruby’s third and most awaited book of prose, My Hope for Tomorrow is a book about self-discovery. Through one-two page passages in this 218-page curative book, Ruby takes her readers on a journey from hardship to a haven, from hurting to healing, and from suffering to feeling at ease.

There pieces about love and all the different shades of heartbreak. There are pieces about mental health and acceptance. There are pieces about relationships shared with family, friends and lovers. There are pieces about growth and discovery. There are pieces about grief and sadness.

This book is for anyone who is on the path to self-discovery and would like to mend their broken pieces gently, easily and softly. It is tender to the heart, kind to the soul and food for
the mind, but it aims to alleviate all the pain and unease that people all over the world areexperiencing.

This book is a balm for the scars within everyone’s hearts, and it is the answer to all the questions that we have ever asked ourselves.
