Ross Young was born in Newcastle Upon Tyne in a hospital that has since been knocked down. He spent his childhood in a variety of international locales and uses this fact to affect an air of the windswept and interesting, badly. He enjoys diving and traveling and has lived and worked in various interesting places.
Dead Heads is his debut novel and forms part of a series of books set in the city of Gloomwood, the Grim Reaper’s own slice of the afterlife. He does not write from experience as, despite his appearance and demeanor, he is not dead.
