R.L. Fink, (otherwise known as Ruby Lucille Fink), grew up in Topanga, California as the eldest of three. An avid listener, then reader of detective stories, Ruby spent her evenings devouring the pages of Nancy Drew, Trixie Beldon, Hardy Boys, Encyclopedia Brown and Sammy Keyes, with a mix of Harry Potter, Redwall, Artemis Fowl, Chronicles of Narnia and Eragon thrown in for variety.
The only thing better than writing novels would have been to become a character in one. But since that never happened, Ruby chose to write Mickie McKinney: Boy Detective, a series based on a middle school experience that never happened, but would've been fun if it did, with a bizarre group of friends that never existed, but would've been fun if they had.
Ruby studied Film Production at Chapman University’s Dodge College, with a minor in Narrative and Dramatic Literature. She has enjoyed producing many audiobooks over the last several years, and manages a small staff of freelance illustrators, audio engineers and voice actors, who make up the close-knit group that is Faux Fiction Audio.
