Meet the Author

An award-winning, bestselling novelist, Ruth Glick writing as Rebecca York is the author of close to 80 books. Ever since she can remember, Ruth has loved making stories full of adventure, romance, and suspense. As a child she corralled her friends into adventure games or acted out stories with a cast of dolls.

But she never assumed she could be an author, because she couldn't spell. Her life changed, however, with the invention of the word processor and spell checker--and the help of her husband who spots spelling errors from 50 paces.

In addition to her fiction career, Ruth is also an award-winning author of 12 cookbooks, although she admits that her first culinary adventure was a spectacular failure.

At the age of three, she made a cake out of modelling clay and asked a friend to share it with her. They were both sick for a week. The early misadventure failed to dampen her culinary enthusiasm. By the age of eight she had mastered the skill of doctoring canned soup with herbs and spices.

When she married during the summer between her junior and senior years in college, she dazzled her new husband by making 40 different main dishes before repeating herself. The only failure was devilled crab. Because she had no cayenne pepper, she tried to compensate by using double the amount of black pepper. Her husband, who likes his food hot, ate the fiery dish anyway.

Ruth says she has the best job in the world. Not only does she get paid for spinning out her fantasies, she also gets paid for playing with food in the kitchen. Her creativity is further evident in the fabulous European-style garden she has designed and in the eclectic furnishings throughout her home.

Ruth's many awards include the 1998 Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award for Best Harlequin Intrigue of the Year for Nowhere Man, and the 1998 Affaire de Coeur Choices des Critiques (Critics' Choice) Award for Best Contemporary Romance Novel, also for Nowhere Man. She has also won two Career Achievement awards from Romantic Times. Michael Dirda, of Washington Post Book World, calls her "a real luminary of contemporary series romance."

If left to her own devices, Ruth would stay home working on her novels. But every few months her husband pries her away from her word processor for a trip.

They have travelled across the U.S. and Canada and frequently visit foreign locals. Their wanderings have taken them to the British Isles, Central and South America, France, Italy, Greece, and Tunisia.

Ruth makes a point of trying a wide range of foreign dishes, which often inspire recipes in her cookbooks. Many of her unique experiences find their way into her novels--like the time she encountered a coral snake in the Guatemalan jungle, taking a helicopter over a burning lava field, or a hot-air balloon flight. And the dry creek in her front garden is filled with the rocks her husband has kindly lugged home for her from around the world.

Ruth holds a B.A. in American Thought and Civilization from the George Washington University and an M.A. in American Studies from the University of Maryland. She heads the Columbia Writer's Workshop, a group of writers who have been meeting every two weeks to critique each other's work for the past 25 years.

    Not great

    ## The heroine is supposed to be Chief of Security for a top-notch private security company yet she loses the young woman she supposed to be guarding after said young woman slips drugs into her drink. Then later while undercover she is drugged again. Iced tea with the enemy. How about not accepting any more drinks that aren't sealed? Helllooo? Geez, even I know that. The hero and heroine don't really get to know each other because they are undercover with different personas. So how is it after the assignment they are in love and proposing marriage? Nah, this didn't work for me. She was too needy and he was no gem either.

    Superb undercover tale

    Winston Industry security chief Maddy Guthrie believes she screwed up her assignment of watching over her employer¿s teenage daughter Dawn. Though her charge slipped her a sleeping pill, Maddy feels culpable for enabling Dawn to flee to Manhattan. Calling in ex-CIA agent Jack Connors for help, he finds out that thugs working for Oliver Reynold abducted Dawn. Because Oliver hates Dawn¿s dad, Maddy and Jack worry about the victim¿s safety, as this is not an ¿ordinary¿ kidnapping. Oliver holds Dawn prisoner on Orchid Island in the Caribbean. <P>To safely expedite Dawn, Jack poses as a wealthy man while Maddy acts as his plaything. Jack forces Maddy to share sex with him before they go undercover so that their performance seems genuine. The sex is more than great and soon the two operatives fall in love. However, their feelings must be kept in abeyance as the danger mounts for them and Dawn. <P> BODY CONTACT is an exhilarating romance that is literally and figuratively action-packed undercover. The story line is loaded with sexual tension and taut suspense though Jack¿s initial insistence of sharing sex before the tropical encounter seems more like a bad male ploy. Still Rebecca York cleverly blazes a heated suspense that will garner her new readers who will also want to follow secondary character Alex Shane¿s adventures in Harlequin Intrigue¿s upcoming FROM The SHADOWS. <P>Harriet Klausner
