Ruth Radmore Bio

Ruth Radmore was born, raised, and educated in California. She wrote her first poem when she was eight, and her first story was published two years later. Those creative interests expanded from that time on. Ruth received her BA and teaching credential at UCLA, and her MA at the College of the Pacific in Central California. While teaching, Ruth met and married another teacher, David Radmore. The couple spent their 14-month honeymoon bicycle camping in Europe, and wintered in Tangier. Later, they volunteered for the Peace Corps for two years, and taught at the Women’s Training College in Nigeria. During holidays, Ruth worked at a toy factory designing and making toys and furniture, while David trained track and field athletes for the upcoming Olympic Games. The Radmores have hosted many exchange students and friends from their travel abroad. Before retiring from teaching, Ruth began an advertising and design business and later studied Commercial Design one summer at the Art Center College of Design. Since retiring from business, she has created ceramic portraits and sculptures, and is currently writing educational children’s books. Mr. and Mrs. Radmore live on two acres in Central California, where their home has become a “fun house” for their many interests. They’ve enjoyed having a donkey, horses, ostriches, llamas, and special in-home pets. Both believe “There should be joy in each day,” and that “If dreams have meaning and value, they should be realized.” Their new dreams continue

Yours is a comforting voice during a challenging time. Your stories are charming. Each one is uniquely warm and inspiring, and the messages are uplifting for children and parents alike. The books deserve to be in homes across the country — and the world. They remind me of one of my all-time heroes:  Mr. Rogers!  They are kind, nurturing, and so encouraging.

I think these books are perfect for children. They are colorful, bright, and the illustrations are awesome. I regret there were no such books in my childhood.

-Ludmila Levine Chairman of the American English Department

They are fun to read. Both the writings and drawings are original. They are amazing.  There are so many things that could be learned. One student commented she was also learning about American culture.
