About Ruby Karyo

My name is Ruby Karyo. I was born in the beautiful country of Ghana. At the age of twenty-three, I moved to America with the possibility of becoming a philanthropist, film director, and author. Yes, it’s been said that I have some ambition! It all started in Ghana, the first time I watched Finding Forrester. That movie inspired me to become the writer I am today. I started writing in my small, cornered studio room in 2011. After the film’s end, I looked at myself in the mirror, closed my eyes, meditated, and watched my surroundings. Within that space, I saw myself as an author. Although I didn’t know what it took to be a writer, I always had that growing up, but that magical moment brought the clarity I needed. The movie reminded me of my true self, envisioning myself in others by telling stories, biographies, and different genres. It started awkwardly, slowly, and gradually; people told me to find another profession. With time and precision, on a particular day on set at Warner Brothers, I came across a book, Shantaram, by Gregory David Roberts. That book became my favorite novel, and I wanted to be a writer like him or better.

"Behind every journey, there is a story untold".

After a long day on set, I got home, took a hot bath, and sat down to create a meditation space. With my eyes closed again and in a quiet place, I envisioned myself as one of the world’s best writers; the affirmation was right there and then. I never stopped writing from that very blessed day and do not intend to give up on what I believe. Passion is everything I got, and giving up is not an option.
My first book, “GRACE HAS FOUND WAR,” is a dedication to the homeless children, my son, myself, and the rest of the world, reminding them that anything and everything is attainable if only one would believe.
I’m pursuing a bachelor’s degree in English—focusing on Creative Writing (Warren Wilson College) —and my first self-published debut title, Grace has Found War (self-help title), has proven an excellent learning experience.
My dream is to build schools for impoverished children—and I’m never satisfied to leave a dream in bed.

Sometimes, we let our circumstances predict our judgements without fully concluding and finding its way to end the unknown desires
