Ruby Among Us

Sac State Graduate Releases Debut Novel Set in the Sonoma Valley
CSU Sacramento graduate, Tina Ann Forkner, releases her debut novel, Ruby Among Us, from Random House/Waterbrook Press.

Set in the lush vineyards of present and past Sonoma Valley, Ruby Among Us weaves a story of three generations of women and the memory that binds their hearts together. Journey with Lucy as she searches from Sacramento to San Francisco and through the Sonoma Valley for a heritage long buried with her mother, Ruby, in this stirring tale of remembrance and redemption. With a keen eye for detail and a fresh, contemporary voice, Forkner has created a timeless story of women finding themselves, their purpose, and the meaning of faith.

Ruby Among Us is available in bookstores and online.

Tina Ann Forkner writes contemporary fiction that challenges and inspires. Forkner's debut novel was heavily inspired by her time spent in and around San Francisco, the Sonoma Valley and Sacramento, where as a student she honed her writing skills. Forkner graduated with honors in English from CSU Sacramento in 1998.
