About meI'm the author of two novels, The Salt God's Daughter and The Language of Trees.

An early review from Gregory Maguire (Wicked) for The Language of Trees:
“The Language of Trees, like Whitman’s Leaves of Grass though in a magic realist vernacular, refreshingly asserts that deeply American conviction: the gravest natural instinct is to heal and be healed. A shimmeringly heart-felt story.”
— Gregory Maguire, author of the Wicked series

Ilie Ruby won the Phi Kappa Phi Award for Fiction, the Edwin L. Moses Award, a Kerr Foundation Fiction Scholarship, the Davidoff Scholarship in NonFiction, and the Barbara Kemp Award for Outstanding Teaching and Scholarship. She is the former fiction editor of The Southern California Anthology.
