My name is Stephen Ross. I am a crime and mystery author. My short stories have appeared in the Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, the Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, and several others. I have been nominated for an Edgar award and a Derringer award, and I was a 2010 Ellery Queen Readers Award finalist. I am a member of the MWA (Mystery Writers of America) and I like cats.
