Nick Ruth is the author of The Remin Chronicles, a fantasy series for ages 9-12. Nick draws on the world around him for inspiration in creating his imaginative adventures. He came up with the idea for the first book, The Dark Dreamweaver, while raising Monarch butterflies with his son as a family project. What if one of the tiny caterpillars suddenly talked, and turned out to be a wizard? A few other ideas were added to the mix and The Dark Dreamweaver, the story of a boy on an adventure to the land of dreams, came into his mind fully formed.
The Dark Dreamweaver has won numerous awards, including the Mom's Choice Award, iParenting Media Award, and selection as an ABA Book Sense Pick (now IndieBound). A year later, after swearing he would never write another book, he wrote The Breezes of Inspire.
