New and Forthcoming

You can read many of my individual short stories on my Curious Fictions page. I just set it up as of March 2019, and it will take a while to upload a library, but do check it out and subscribe. Some stories will be free and others for subscribers only. The first free story, "Sweet Prince," is a light, short collection of letters from Gertrude of Denmark to Elizabeth I of England, complaining of the antics of her wayward son. Enjoy!


The print edition of Ink Dance: Essays on the Writing Life is now available, with extra pages for your own notes. Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or your favorite indie bookstore through Ingram.
A cup of inspiration, a dash of understanding, a bouquet of wisdom for writers new and old. From the desk of writer and editor Deborah J. Ross comes a collection of warm, insightful essays on “the writing life” – from getting started, negotiating with the Idea Fairy and creating memorable characters, to writing queries, surviving bad reviews, dealing with life’s interruptions and creative jealousy, to nourishing yourself and your creative muse. With space for personal notes.


The print edition of Pearls of Fire, Dreams of Steel is also available now. Same vendors.
