Kathryn H. Ross is a California Native in her mid 20s. She earned her Bachelor's Degree in English and Writing in 2015 and her Masters in English and Creative Writing in 2018, both from her alma mater, Azusa Pacific University.

Ross works as an independent contractor/freelance copywriter and editor and is 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.
