Professional Skills

There is nothing I love more than writing. Whether it is fiction or nonfiction. Or, crafting an ad or public relations piece, or writing a heartfelt and honest letter of intent on behalf of a charity. Writing is my passion. It is where my soul resides.

The ability to craft a story and have the characters come to life is an amazing feeling. The powerful way to convey—through pen and paper—your heart's thoughts and what you may be thinking on any given subject, is exhilarating. 

In the midst of my writing and editing and copywriting duties, I am an entrepreneur; owning my own small press publishing company and consulting boutique (JohnRue™ Publications). And a Bath, Body & Home Essentials business, RueFox™ (online store coming soon!) carrying a range of organic products for the entire family.

About Me

What I know for certain...


I'm well-versed in copywriting for all print mediums and web, for individuals, small businesses, and non profits.

When you need to begin your week with inspiration and motivation, visit my weekly Blog and Devotional! Tell Me Where You Hurt. I believe in nurturing the soul and spirit, as well as the body.

There are a plan and a purpose for each one of our lives. Sometimes we don't get the memo right away because we are too busy with life and all of the punches and curve balls it sometimes brings our way. That's okay, however. Those life hiccups only bring us closer to where we belong. Where God has ordained for our life all along. Does it hurt? Yes. It certainly does at times. Does it make any sense? Unfortunately, no. Not all the time. But that's just a part of life and growing up.

Do not waste your energy or time comparing yourself o anyone else. Comparison will rob you of joy and peace. Love who you are at every moment. You don't have to like it, or you! But you must learn to love yourself. Because in life, sometimes we will only have ourselves and God looking over us, and we must decide: Are we going to see and say what God says concerning us? Or, are we going to listen to the enemy of our souls? Who has been labeled the father of lies and of smoke and mirrors?

Believing what God says about you trumps all other opinions. You just have to tell your heart and spirit to remember that when the sometime storms of life come your way.
