Ruby Ann first made a name for herself, bookwise, with the publication of the best-selling Ruby Ann's Down Home Trailer Park Cookbook, which she filled with recipes and gossipy tidbits about her neighbors back home at the High Chaparral Trailer Park in Pangburn, Arkansas. (She owns a second trailer "in the elite part of Commerce City.")
Her latest effort, Dear Ruby Ann: Down Home Advice About Lovin', Livin' and the Whole Shebang, may be short in the recipe department, but Ruby Ann still keeps readers up to date with all her homies, including her sister, Donna Sue, "a sexpot and professional drinker," as well as the folks down at the Big Balls Bowling Alley and the Holier Than Most Baptist Church.
Ruby Ann appears at the Tattered Cover Book Store, 2955 East First Avenue in Cherry Creek, at 1 p.m. today to sign copies of her new book. For info, call 303-322-7727 or visit Ruby Ann's website at www.rubylot18.homestead.com. -- Karen Bowers
