Ruby Fink is a writer, director and producer from Los Angeles, California. Daughter of actress Jane Sibbett and writer Karl Fink, she has been surrounded and in love with the process of writing and creating new worlds from stories her whole life.
She wrote and directed her first short film when she was twelve, and she won her high school film festival’s Best Screenplay award in 2006 for her sci-fi film, Trash Queen.
In 2012 Ruby helped edit a two-‐hour documentary called 13 Grandmothers: Pacifica, a series of stories from indigenous matriarchal tribal leaders from the Islands. In 2013 Ruby worked as a free-‐lance editor for 1736 Family Crisis Center, making ten promotional short videos featuring Brad Garret, Jason Alexander, William Keck III, and Jan Perry-‐among others.
One of fifteen students to be accepted into Chapman University’s Film Production Program, Ruby studied Directing, with a minor in Narrative and Dramatic Literature.
In 2014, her interests turned to podcasting, bringing her in contact with Sebastian Prooth, a fellow writer and producer, known for Star Trek: The Continuing Mission. They teamed up briefly to write Revolutionaries, the pilot to the series, Shadows of Tyranny, which was released April 4th, 2015.
The show never released any more episodes, but the work inspired Ruby Fink to create her own show, Mickie McKinney: Boy Detective, an old-‐radio styled detective story about Mickie McKinney, a middle school private eye who solves the mysteries that plague the halls of Maple Ridge Middle School with his best friend, Sam Hayes.
Ruby met with Jack Rochester when she submitted her audio show to his podcast, Fictional Café, in the hopes of introducing her show to a wider audience. The two bonded over their love of old radio shows and when Jack mentioned he needed an editor for his audio book, Ruby was happy to take on the project. Now with two finished audio books completed, and a cast of talented voice actors at her disposal, Ruby is looking for more projects to take on to expand her audio book business.
