About the Author

Coming of age in the late 1960s, Ruth Marcus hitchhiked from Wisconsin to San Francisco where she expressed many passions including graphic design, clothing design/manufacturing and mail order, and teaching at the Academy of Art. She earned a Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology and a Doctorate in Religious Studies-skills she applied in a counseling practice and Hospice grief groups. Macro-floral photography has been another interest that earned her juried entry to art shows in the northwest. Her photography has published as floral cards and matted images. Marcus' current passion is a daily writing. She lives on the Olympic Peninsula where nature inspires her to write poetry nearly every day. She hosts writing groups and facilitates open mic events-all for the love of being with writers.


"Fast-paced, fair-minded, and news-making, Ruth Marcus's Supreme Ambition goes behind the scenes with all sides in the confirmation battle over Brett Kavanaugh and tells a revealing tale about judges, justice, and the future of the Supreme Court."
-- Jeffrey Toobin, New York Times bestselling author of The Nine and American Heiress

"Ruth Marcus's Supreme Ambition is at once an electrifying account of a flawed judicial nomination and a revealing study of morally corrupt Republicans, and at times politically inept Democrats, in a dysfunctional U.S. Senate."
-- David Maraniss, Pulitzer Prize winning author of Barack Obama: The Story and First in His Class

"Shrewd, fair, and surprising, both a morality play and a political knife fight, this tale explains how we got here, and challenges us to think about how to adapt our institutions to forces that threaten them."
-- Nancy Gibbs, New York Times bestselling coauthor of The Presidents Club

"Very tough but fair-minded, a wise history. Clearly the best of the Kavanaugh books."
-- Bob Woodward, New York Times bestselling author of Fear: Trump in the White House
"Extraordinarily detailed and highly insightful."
-- Washington Post

"Impressively reported, highly insightful and a rollicking good read."
-- New York Times Book REview

"Powerful, meticulously researched...An illuminating and evenhanded look at an incendiary event."
-- Kirkus Reviews
