Ruth Long is an Irish author (and Dublin native) who’s written romantic fantasy as R.F. Long and YA as Ruth Frances Long. Her latest novel, A Hollow in the Hills, is the second in a YA trilogy (the first, A Crack in Everything, came out last year) set in Dublin, and starring a cast of mythical beings—and Izzy Gregory, the teenager who gets mixed up with them.
In the spirit of national chauvinism and because she bought me a drink, I decided to ask Ruth a few questions this week.
Well, okay. Also because I rather appreciate her YA novels.
