  • Anchorage, AK (1888PressRelease) October 27, 2015 - Ruth Anderson Lawler, Author, has been selected as an Executive of the Year Member of the Covington Who's Who Executive and Professional Registry.

    Born and raised in New England, Author Ruth Anderson Lawler grew up with an affinity for books, horses, and reading. Attending boarding school as a teen, her classmates and teachers knew that she would someday write books. Upon following her older brother to the University of Pennsylvania where she studied elementary education, writing was put on hold. Earning her BS in Education in 1963, Mrs. Anderson taught fourth grade for two years in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Tiring of vast chains of cities and towns with vanishing horse trails, she moved out west to wrangle dudes, horses, cattle, sheep and buffalo. In 1969 she married Jim Lawler, a rancher from Meeteetse, Wyoming. They relocated to Anchorage, Alaska where their two sons and daughter were born. Jim worked as an oilfield supervisor for Atlantic Richfield, then new owner, British Petroleum, on Alaska's North Slope and she taught grades 3-6 for two years at the new Anchorage Christian School.

    In 1977, with three active children and an airplane, wide open spaces again beckoned and the family moved to 40 acres and a runway in Kasilof, on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula. Keeping her Alaska teacher's certificate up to date, Mrs. Lawler took classes at the University of Alaska's Kenai Peninsula College. She had about five stories published in 'Driftwood', the college's yearly collection of student's work, and also in the quarterly publication of Kasilof Community Church. She had opportunities to read her stories at the Kenai Visitor's center, at banquets sponsored by the Kenai Writer's Club, and at the yearly Homer Writer's Conference. During this time of child rearing Mrs. Lawler taught speed reading on computer for 10 years as a volunteer at her children's Christian school.

    Although she worked on an off on her novel 'Kinsman Redeemer' for many years, it was not ready to publish until 2013, long after her children graduated college and established their own homes. This book was followed by 'Thank You, Mom and Dad', a picture book for families, in 2015.

    Mrs. Lawler notes, "My books have a Christian outlook and hopefully inspire my readers to understand the blessings of faith. I am currently researching for the sequel to 'Kinsman Redeemer' during the reign of the Danish King Canute in England, Denmark, Norway and parts of Sweden from 1016-1035."

    Mrs. Lawler is grateful to her parents for supporting and allowing her the freedom to become the person she wanted to be. She and her husband thoroughly enjoy their adventurous life in Alaska, a very fine place to raise a family. She is thankful that God provided her with wonderful parents, spouse, and children, plus the resources to accomplish her goals. She is a member of the American Legion Auxiliary, the Kenai Peninsula Writer's Group, and a longtime member of the NRA.
