Meet the Organizers: Sheila Ruth, YA Speculative Fiction


Sheila Ruth is happy to have found her tribe in the Cybils. Where else can she geek out about children's literature with other people who get it? She has been with the Cybils since the beginning, and has worn several different hats over the years: Category Chair, Publisher Liaison, and developer of the Cybils database, but her favorite part is reading and debating the books as a panelist.

Sheila loves musical theatre, and when she's not reading she can often be found working backstage in local theatre. She loves computers and technology, and enjoys developing websites and web applications. She is a life-long resident of Maryland, but is equally at home in cyberspace. She blogs about YA fantasy and science fiction on her Wands and Worlds blog, and she's the founder of a small press publisher, Imaginator Press. Her favorite TV shows are Doctor Who, Once Upon a Time, and Big Bang Theory, which she thinks is the funniest show on television. Her favorite books are too numerous to mention. Don't blink!
