Kashif Ross


In Short
I am the enemy of gummy bears. I break into their homes and slaughter their women and children. But I'm mostly proud of my candybalism, biting off their heads!

The Long
Most of my friends would say, I'm a sarcastic and brutally honest guy, which you'll see in many of my characters.

I like to let every reader know that my stories might not be for them. My characters are a reflection of people I know. You may not like them at times, but that's what it means to be human. I recommend that you read the reviews and the preview before making your investment.

I'm is a California grown writer. I obtained two degrees that most people have never heard of, a bachelor's in Social Ecology and a master's in Gerontology. Initially, I used writing as therapy to block out all of life's stressors. Overtime my hobby evolved into a passion that made my wife a writer's widow. When I'm not devoting every spare minute to my Barcode series, I can be found jamming out on Rock Band, embarking on adventures with manga characters, or outside playing hide-and-seek with the sun.
