Ross Young is the author of the Gloomwood series of novels set in the Grim Reaper’s afterlife. He writes offbeat fantasy and speculative fiction infused with the noxious aroma of humour. Having lived in numerous countries around the world he attempts to affect the air of the windswept and interesting, badly. Ross now lives in France with his wife, daughter, and an Egyptian street dog that follows him around the world. He does not write from experience as, despite his appearance and demeanor, he is not dead.
