About the author (2008)

Mr. Ross, a University of Missouri-Columbia graduate, is nothing more than a fifty-something man that was searching for a positive outlet to battle the economic ups and downs that most people experience. He went to a keyboard and let the words flow through his fingertips. He is an avid, low-handicap golfer that enjoys the sport and the lessons of the game. Golf may very well hold the key to a lot of life's best secrets. Lifetime Loser is his first novel. Creative energies will dictate whether or not another story is to be told.
