Kathryn H. Ross is a California Native in her mid 20s. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in English and Writing and is pursuing her Masters in English and Creative Writing at her alma mater.

Ross works as an independent contractor/freelance writer and editor and is currently available for writing and editing services. She is also a peer reviewer for Whale Road Review. As a writer, she loves fiction (especially fond of flash), poetry (adores prose poems), & creative non-fiction/memoir (the deep down stuff that keeps her up at night).

Her literary loves and influences are Ray Bradbury, J.K. Rowling, John Steinbeck, Edith Wharton, Rudolph Fisher, Edgar Allan Poe, Jesmyn Ward, Toni Morrison, & James Weldon Johnson, but they're just the tip of her iceberg.

In her works, she tackles everything from spirituality and God to family relationships and race politics in America. Ross hopes to use her voice to begin important dialogues, bridge gaps, and foster compassion and empathy between writers, readers, friends, and strangers.
