Q&A with Rudy Ruiz + GIVEAWAY!

posted in: Uncategorized

After reading and reviewing Seven for the Revolution, I was fortunate to also be able to interview the author, Rudy Ruiz.

Ruiz grew up in Brownsville, Texas, and learned English when he entered school. Ruiz began writing as a child and has always used his experiences on the U.S.-Mexico border  and his heritage as inspiration. A Harvard graduate, Ruiz founded Interlex Communications and published ¡Adelante! in 2003 and Going Hungry in 2008. He has written columns for CNN and his own website, Red Brown and BlueSeven for the Revolution, his fictional debut, garnered several awards from the 2014 Latino Book Awards: First Place in Best Popular Fiction, the Mariposa Award for Best First Book – Fiction, and Second Place for Most Inspirational Fiction Book and Honorable Mention for Best Cover.

Read on for the interview after the jump, as well as to find out how to win my review copy of Seven for the Revolution.
