The Digital Ink Spot: We had the pleasure of interviewing author, Ruth Bleakley-Thiessen, I will allow her to introduce herself to you.
Ruth Bleakley-Thiessen: I'm an author, also a coach and an artist. I've just published 2 non-fiction ebooks - one for Women:Woman Rise and Shine - a simple path for women who want to be themselves and Flown the Coop - a guide to dealing with transition when the kids leave home.
TDIS: What are you trying to accomplish as a writer?
RBT: I have put all of my own experience and that of 12 years of coaching into these two books, offering a set-out guide to look at what comes up for you and how to deal with it. My own 3 kids left home within 9 months and I realized that there weren't too many books on the market to go to for some help. It's a huge transition people go through. I interviewed many parents and have given conclusions from these interviews. I want to give this to others who were in the same position as I was.
The book for women takes a look at the life of a woman, especially from my perspective, as I grew up in a male dominated world. I had to find out for myself what it takes to be a woman, and I have been working with women for 12 years now, specializing in feminine problems. It's not that we have to look for something, we have to peel back the things keeping us back from being our real selves. This book shows us the importance of having other women in our lives, as it used to be within a women's circle.
TDIS: When is your book available?
RBT: These books have been available since 1st March 2016. I'm writing another one for women about how they can tidy up their lives, as soon as I have the two translated into German and published. I declared last year as the year of writing for me, and managed the two books I most wanted to write. I thoroughly enjoyed the process.
TDIS: Where can readers find you?

TDIS: Why should people read you stories?
RBT: The best answer for why my books should be read are the reviews:
Flown the Coop -
"This book gives an invaluable insight into all that can happen when our children ‘fly the coop’ written from the heart, from first hand experience, from the pain, the reality and the truth from what was, to what is, to what can be!
We are taken gently and with exquisite compassion thru’ the steps of transition and given practical suggestions and examples to guide us and bring us the freedom to revel in who we are! now! at this moment in our lives!
We can truly acknowledge and ultimately celebrate ourselves – with all the discovered aspects of what new directions we might take, what we can achieve, what we can change and how we can bring about those changes – we are shown the glorious possibilities of choice!"
“This book emanates a confident woman, whose life's experiences have taken her to the edge and beyond and her courage has given her the power to move through its challenges and come out the other side glistening.
She has listened well to all her teachers and she has understood the truth.
Each chapter gives the reader a glimpse into her life, making it personal, and in that share, the subject matter is easier to hear.“
"Page after page is filled with love as Ruth guides us to discover the religion of love any woman naturally connects to. With this book she encourages all women to ride the way of female liberation sweeping the planet
and get their surfboards ready to even enjoy the ride - arm in arm with men as they rise and shine into a more natural world. A easy and inspiring read, to come back to time and time again!"
