COVER REVEAL

for the soon to release Halloween children's book from Tina Ruiz!


This delightful book is another wonderful collaboration from writer Tina Nykulak Ruiz and illustrator Ishika Sharma. This creative duo knows how to put life and fun into children's books to encourage young people to read. As with all of Tina's children's stories, there's a moral at the end.

A Haunting Birthday Party will be available on Amazon August 1, 2020. Be sure to watch for it!


Tina Ruiz was born in Germany, but her family moved to Canada when she was in grammar school. She began writing children's stories when her own were little. Through the years Ruiz wrote twenty-seven books. Most of those stories went into readers for the Canada Board of Education. Two did not. Mayor Shadoe Markley is a story about a ten-year-old girl who becomes Mayor for a Day through a contest at school.

Little did Ruiz know that story would “change the world.” The book came out at early January 1988. By the end of that same month, everyone was calling the mayor's office at City Hall, trying to get the forms to fill out so their children could participate in the contest. Thirty years later that same contest is still runs at full speed. And not only in Calgary, but all across Canada. The Mayor's Youth Council is now in charge of the celebrated contest and invites Ruiz to attend and meet the lucky winner. It's usually followed by a hand-written thank you card from the mayor himself. Recently Ruiz was invited to be part of the Grand Opening of Calgary's New Library where the mayor shook her hand and introduced her to the attendees.

Tina has worked in television and radio as well as being a professional clown at the Children's Hospital. She lives in Calgary with her husband who encourages her to write her passion be it high-quality children's books or intriguing romance.

  6. Hello, everyone.My name is Kate Curtis, 36 years old from Canada. I,m here to explore blogs and forums about the wonderful and most safe cure for HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS (HSV).
    I was positive to the deadly virus called HERPES and I lost hope because I was outcast and rejected even by my closest friends.
    I searched on-line to find an enquirer cure for HERPES and I read someone's testimony on how he was cured from HSV-2 so i decided to contact the same herbalist Called Dr James because i know that nature has the power to heal everything.
    i contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will help me with the natural herbs from God!
    After 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure has been ready and he sent it to me via DHL COURIER SERVICE and it got to me after 3 days!
    i used the medicine as he instructed me (MORNING and EVENING) and i was cured!
    it's really like a dream but I am so happy!
    That's the reason I decided to also add more comments on Him so that more can be saved just like me!
    and if you need his help, you can email him on Drjamesherbalmix@gmail.com or whatsapp +2348152855846.
