Ruth Searle

Ruth Searle (1960, E) was born in Pembrokeshire and is a writer, artist and marine biologist. She has a PhD in humpback whale ecology and behaviour and has studied the whales in the Caribbean, Tonga, Alaska and Canada. Ruth has sold her work around the world, including through exhibitions on boats in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. She’s been commissioned to create charity cards for the Marine Conservation Society and artwork for an elephant sanctuary as well as numerous private commissions. She is also founder of the Humpback Whale Research Foundation. If she’s not writing, she’s covered in paint in her art studio. She used to be a nurse, and so many of her characters are surgeons, doctors or nurses. Her writing now focuses on intense, emotional psychological thrillers complete with gruesome murders. She has lived in Wales all her life and now lives in the Monmouthshire countryside with her husband, six cats, rescued hens and turkeys.
