Alice W. Ross

Biography

For as long as I can remember my first dream was to be a writer. In elementary school I wrote short stories with my best friend. In college I continued the dream by studying journalism and English. After college I became a teacher and eventually became busy with the joys of being a wife and mother. Time passed faster than I realized, but the dream never died. Finally I came to the realization that it was now or never. I have put a lifetime of thoughts into these first books, The Pictorial Adventure, and Message in the Skye. I hope you will enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them. Please keep in touch and tell me your thoughts about the series.
