Ross Willard, a Colorado resident, has been writing fiction in one form or another since he graduated from the Play-Doh Institute, where he majored in nap time and annoying his teachers. When not writing, Ross defends his title as Tic-Tac-Toe grand master. He is still spoken of in reverent whispers throughout Central Texas for a legendary high scoring two-letter-Scrabble word. Sometimes he finds himself remembering future events, which may explain his interest in speculative fiction. A longtime member of the Penpointers critique group, Ross can often be found procrastinating at his local independent coffee shop, or working on his website, www.rosswriter.com.
