Tell us a little about your writing career.

I started writing by mistake in high school where I was the editor of our school's newspaper. Writing and I have had a love/hate relationship ever since. I freelance for local media outlets on occasion and have my own fashion blog. I'm on a hiatus from freelancing and blogging to work on my first piece of literary work.

Who are your literary influences?

Lately I've been reading some of the classics from Truman Capote and J.D. Salinger. Some other of my literary influences include Terry McMillan, Maya Angelou, Wally Lamb...I really could go on, but I fear I'm sounding like a reference to Oprah's Book Club.

What do you hope to gain from our monthly workshop?

Along with networking with other writers from around the city, I would like to really hone in on my craft. I would like to learn new styles of writing and what works for others. I'm a sponge.


Hello my name is Janelle, otherwise known as Ruby Leonne. I'm a native to Indy and looking forward to being involved with the group.
