Ruth Stewart-Verger was born to a storytelling family, thus learned her art in self defense. Her first love is for stories of people, their struggles and their triumphs! She has told in the mountains, on the prairies, throughout Ontario's woodlands, in schools, libraries, community halls and festivals.

Ruth, in her daytime role as a school teacher, has been nominated for the Capital Educators' Awards.  Ruth is heavily involved in her community and the development of her students.
