About L. A. Ross

L. A. Ross supports her writing habit by working as a technical writer, instructional designer, or business analyst.   Although many of Ross' non-fiction articles have been published over the past years, she is following her dream by enjoying the freedom of writing under a pen name and focusing on her short writings, poems, and plays.  


Some of her poetry and short writings have been published in small journals or collections.  One of her poems, "Chimes," was on Dial-A-Poem-Chicago. She is collecting some of her poems in a book tentatively titled Favorites so far


Ross' plays have been done as productions, workshop productions, programs, and staged readings in Chicago and suburbs, LA, and New York.


"Survivors" has received the most critical attention.  It was first produced by The Playwrights' Center (in Sept./Oct. 1992). "Survivors" was listed by "New City" as one of the top five plays of 1992 and was noted by L. Boomer as a "Critic's Choice" for "The Reader". "Survivors" was also a semi-finalist in the Siena College Playwrights' Competition and a finalist in The Ann White Theatre's New Playwrights' Competition), It was also performed at College of DuPage and Cafe Voltaire. 


Her first play, "A Little Bit of Both," was produced by The Canterbury Players and The Women's Theatre Project.
