Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

With more than three decades of excellence in software engineering, Mr. Ross has earned distinction as a historical fiction author with HistoricalNovelsRUs.

In recognition of his stellar writing, Mr. Ross was an American War Finalist in historical fiction for his book "Across the Great Divide: The Clouds of War" from the Coffee Pot Book Club in 2020.

Prior to his authorial efforts with HistoricalNovelsRUs, Mr. Ross began his career as a member of the technical staff for the computer sciences corporation of NASA/Langley in 1976 and became a digital equipment and senior software engineer for Nashua in 1979. Following this time, he served as a manager of languages for Masscomp in 1984 until becoming a senior software engineer for Apollo Computer in 1985. He continued his career as a software engineer and manager for Metaware Inc. in 1990 and took a role as a compiler construction engineer with Intel in 1996. In 2013, he served as an adjunct professor for Portland Community College.

Before starting his professional journey, Mr. Ross earned a Bachelor of Arts in mathematical science and German from Rice University in 1976. Following this achievement, he attained a Master of Science in software engineering from Portland State University in 2011.

Looking to the future, Mr. Ross intends to continue writing as a member of The Paper Lantern Writers and plans to release a historical fiction anthology this fall. He is presently crafting a story about an individual who fought in the Battle of the Bulge and fell in love with a brave nurse and has two other novels in earlier stages of development. One of these regards a 10-year-old drummer boy named Billy Sims who was involved in the New Hampshire Pine Tree Riot of 1772 and the other is about Mary Ann Bickerdyke, a Civil War nurse who started 350 hospitals and saved countless lives through her efforts.
