"I couldn't put it down!! Never before has any book ignited so wide array of feelings and emotions within (no pun intended). I laughed, cried and read it again, and again, and again. The War Within provides a glimpse into the mind of a soldier. I could feel the pain, joy and anger of the young woman and fellow veteran, who stood tall when the nation called. I understand her quest to regain the person she left behind, on the field of battle. Her writing is a stroke of literary genius." ~ Kate W. Drexler, C.P.O. (Ret.), U.S. Navy "Ruby's poetry is written in a very compelling, gripping fashion. Real life is stripped of all distractions. It is artistic and intuitive." ~ Lorraine Austin ". . . very powerful and moving poems about the military experience." ~ Sheila Fullwood, S.F.C. (Ret.), U.S. Army

About the Author:

Ruby Bowen is a wife, mother, veteran, pilot, poet, essayist, and self-professed perpetual student. A voracious reader her entire life, she first began writing short stories in elementary school and took to writing poetry and essays in the 9th grade. Her poetry has been published in several anthologies including Invoking The Muse (The International Library of Poetry, 2004). Her informative essay "Robot Soldiers" was published in the college textbook An Introduction to Public Speaking (Fountainhead Press, 2010). Most recently, she won 2nd place in a business essay contest (2011) sponsored by Bloomberg's Business Week Magazine for her essay "Total Quality Management at Southwest Airlines" (publication date T.B.D.). Ruby served in the U.S. Army as a Chemical Operations Specialist for 9 years (1997- 2006). In 2003, she deployed to Kuwait and Iraq in support of Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom and was awarded the Combat Action Badge upon her return home. She was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and medically retired at the rank of Staff Sergeant. After exiting the military, she earned a B.B.A. in Finance (2009) and a M.B.A. in Management (2011) from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. She is a licensed pilot and is currently completing college courses towards a degree in Aviation Science. She is an active member of The Ninety-Nines International Organization of Women Pilots (San Antonio Chapter), Women In Aviation, International, and Women In Corporate Aviation, International. She resided in Central Texas with her husband Anthony, daughter Celia, and canine daughters Daisy and Sydney.
