Tell us about your writing space or home office.Do It Write: Where Ruth A Casie writes @RuthACasie #RLFblog #Medievalromance
I’m fortunate. I have two writing spaces. With all my children on their own, I took over my younger daughter’s room and made it my executive office. It has everything I want except I feel a bit isolated.
Last year, I put a library table in the living room and set up my laptop. It’s easier to get to the kitchen.
Anything special about your space?
I get a HUGE cup of tea, put on my writing playlist, and start up the fireplace. I’m in heaven.
What do you love most about that area?
I love my office. I love the red wall paper, the Berber carpet, the bookcases. I love everything about that room. I’ve written some of my best stories there.
I also love my space in the living room. The fireplace most of all.
What would like to change about your home office?
I don’t think I would change much in my office, although I would like to put more bookcases in and organize the room more.
If money was no object, what would your home office look like?
I would make my office look more like a library. I would raise the ceiling and put bookcases up the wall with rolling ladders to get to the top.
What’s the last book about writing that you read?
Verbalize by Damon Suede was the last book about writing that I read.
What do you like to read for relaxation?
I like to read adventure and mystery books in addition to romance.
Do you have an author newsletter?
I have a monthly newsletter that lets my subscribers know what I doing, writing and where I will be. I also highlight other authors whenever I can.

Hi – I’m Ruth A Casie and I write historical and contemporary romance. You might be wondering what I’m about. Sit back and let me tell you.
I’m happiest when I’m telling stories either chatting in a group or writing them down. I love to put my hero and heroine in tough situations and dare them to work it out—together, always together. They haven’t disappointed. Oh, they complain but in the end their love and relationships are stronger than ever.
Here are five things you probably don’t know about me.
1. I filled my passport up in one year.
2. I have three series. The Druid Knight stories are a historical time travel series. The Stelton Legacy is historical fantasy about the seven sons of a seventh son. Havenport Romances are stories set in a small coast Rhode Island town. I also write stories in the connected world the Pirates of Britannia.
3. I did a rap to “How Many Trucks Can a Tow Truck Tow If a Tow Truck Could Tow Trucks.”
4. When I cook I dance.
5. My Sudoku book is in the bathroom. I’m not saying anything else about that.
My stories feature strong women and the men who deserve them, endearing flaws and all. Their stories will keep you turning the pages until the end. I hope my stories become your favorite adventures.
I’m a USA Today bestselling author.

Constant spinning, round and round and round, temperatures rise and fall from stifling heat to chilling cold, emotions run high in anticipation of what will happen next… there’s a fine line between surviving a tornado and falling in love.
A close encounter with a tornado, during the final months of her doctoral studies, jogs a lost memory to the surface. Desperate to relive the vision and find answers, storm chaser Elaina Adams continually puts her safety at risk by placing herself in the path of dangerous storms.
When betrayal strikes, Elaina is forced to pair up with Robert Tucker. “Tuck” owns a storm chasing tour group and only cares about two things: chasing tornadoes and making his next buck.
Seth Maddux was climbing his way to the top as the star meteorologist for the Forecast channel, but an embarrassing outburst on camera sent his career on a downward spiral. Hoping to reignite his career with a promising field assignment, he meets Elaina and a different kind of flame sparks.
Family secrets surface and passions explode in this twister of a tale.

“It pulls at my heart with its beauty and purpose. It
represents all I hold dear in a person, if that’s possible, heart, soul and
strength.”  Laura Reynolds, The
Highlander’s English Woman
I knew I found the right setting
for my medieval ghost story when I saw a picture of Caerlaverock Castle.
Reading Caerlaverock’s history I
understood why the Maxwell family fought to hold it and why their enemies had
to destroy it.
Caerlaverock Castle is a moated
castle on the southern coast of Scotland in the Dumfries. The unique
equilateral triangular design and beauty of the castle, from the way it’s sited
to its rich history, made Caerlaverock the perfect setting for my stories, The
Maxwell Ghost and The Highlander’s English Woman.
There were several original fortifications
that preceded the current castle, a Roman fort on Ward Law Hill and a British
hill fort that was used until 950.
The earliest mention of
Caerlaverock is the 1160s, when the lands were granted to the monks of Holm
Cultram Abbey. Sixty years later, in 1220 the lands were granted to Sir John
Maxwell by Alexander II of Scotland.
The Maxwell family has owned the
Caerlaverock Castle ever since, but not without some intrigue and adventure.
The clan leader changed allegiances from Scotland to England several times
which resulted in sieges, destruction and rebuilding.
John Maxwell began construction of
the first castle at Caerlaverock. A traditional square design with a moat and a
north facing bridge, the building was one of the earliest stone castles built
in Scotland. Archeologists believe that this castle was never completed when it
was abandoned. This castle was built close to the Solway Firth. Built on clay
the wood pilings were not able to bear the weight of the structure. In
addition, the structure couldn’t be kept dry or comfortable. Today, the
foundations and part of a wooden enclosure around it is all that remains.
Work began on the new castle, six
hundred feet south of the abandoned structure in 1260.
Construction on the new (present)
castle, on a solid rock outcropping and was completed in the 1270s. The castle’s
first occupant was Herbert Maxwell, nephew of Sir John Maxwell.
Caerlaverock was the Maxwell
family’s stronghold from the 13th to the 17th centuries. It underwent several
sieges over the centuries and was finally abandoned in 1640. The castle has
been destroyed and rebuilt several times, but retained its triangular plan.
In 1299, Maxwell forces from
Caerlaverock Castle attached the English-held Lochmaben Castle. Edward I
retaliated in July 1300 and attacked Caerlaverock with 87 knights and 3,000
men. Eustace Maxwell, the clan chief repelled the English several times. In the
end, the garrison surrendered. King Edward was astounded that only sixty men
held his army off.
Caerlaverock Castle remained in
English hands until 1312 when the castle was returned to Sir Eustace Maxwell
who pledged allegiance to the English king, Edward II. Later, Eustace switched
his support to Robert the Bruce and the castle was unsuccessfully attacked by
the English.
Because of Caerlaverock’s prime
position on the England-Scottish border and the fear it could fall into the
hands of the English who would have a strong command of the district, Sir
Eustace dismantled the fortress, a sacrifice rewarded by Robert the Bruce.
In 1337 the castle was once again
inhabited and once again the Eustace changed sides. About 1355 the castle was
captured by the Scots.
The Maxwells regained Caerlaverock
after the Wars of Independence in the mid-14th century. Between 1373
and 1410, Robert Maxwell rebuilt much of the castle. His efforts were continued
by Robert II in the mid-15th century.
In 1567, the Maxwells supported
Mary, Queen of Scots and Caerlaverock was once again under siege by the English
in 1570. The Earl of Sussex led the English forces and demolished part of the
castle.
In 1593, Lord John Maxwell
repaired the castle for defense against the Johnstones of Annandale with whom
he was feuding.
The Wars for Independence were
replaced by wars of religion. In 1634, religious turmoil turned against the
Catholic Maxwells. In 1640 the Protestant Covenanter army attacked Caerlaverock
for thirteen weeks forcing the castle to surrender. The south wall and tower
were demolished and the castle was never repaired or reoccupied.
The castle passed by inheritance
to the Herries family and to the Duke of Norforlk. While currently owned by
Lady Mary Mumford’s sister Baroness Herries, since 1946 the castle has been
operated and managed by Historic Scotland. The castle remains the ancestral
home of the Maxwell family.
