W. J. Ross


W. J. Ross has lived in Montana for 50 years, and learned to fly there at the seasoned age of 37. Advanced ratings followed the initial private pilot license, and she eventually became a commercial pilot and flight instructor. While teaching hundreds of student pilots to fly, she also flew game management flights for the Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks Division, and spent 15 years as a summertime fire patrol pilot for the state’s fire aviation division.

A graduate of the University of Montana with a degree in English Literature, Ross has been a freelance writer for several decades. Her work has appeared in High Country News, and as syndicated articles in regional newspapers. Her website, Adventure Flights, can be found at http://flights-of-fantasy.info/. She volunteers time as a publicist/scribe for the Musselshell Watershed Coalition, and published a water use history that has become a valuable resource for watershed groups across the state. She also assisted in the state’s Department of Natural Resource and Conservation Division 2013-14 development of a statewide water use plan.

This extensive background in wilderness flying, Montana conservation, and writing combine to add realism in settings and characters to her first novel, “Who Fears the Wolf?” featuring Leigh McIntyre, pilot and amateur sleuth. More volumes in the series will follow.
