M.C. Ross is an author for young readers, a playwright, and a dog walker when he’s lucky. His first books for young readers, A Dog’s Porpoise and R.I.P., were published in 2019, and he is currently working on his third book. And his fourth, and maybe his fifth. He likes to write.

Originally from Apple Valley, Minnesota, M.C. Ross knew that he wanted to be a writer from the time he was in first grade. He went to Harvard University, got a degree in English, moved to New York, and started writing books for kids. Well, there were some other steps in the middle – he wore a funny hat and worked as a tour guide; he went door to door around Minnesota raising money for Sesame Street; and he spent two years as a babysitter to a family of three Siberian Huskies, all of whom were insane. Overall, he feels very fortunate.
