Ruby Lang is pint-sized, prim, and bespectacled. Her alter ego, Mindy Hung, is a columnist for Brain Mill Press. Mindy also covered romance novels for The Toast, and has written for The New York Times, Bitch, and other fine venues. She enjoys running (slowly), reading (quickly), and ice cream (at any speed). She lives in New York with a small child and a medium-sized husband.



I was born in Vancouver, Canada, and raised in Winnipeg. When I was younger, I wanted to be fast-talking journalist Hildy Johnson from His Girl Friday but lacked verbal speed (and the ability to look good in hats) so I became a hatless and hapless editor instead. I have a scar on my leg from zipping down a banister in fifth grade. I also once slid down the escalator banister at the Westin Emerald Plaza in San Diego but sustained no lasting damage—except perhaps to my dignity.
