Ross Harrison is the author of novels and short stories in the realms of science fiction - specifically space opera and science fantasy - thriller, noir, and steampunk. He has been writing since childhood, and occasionally likes to revisit those old stories for a good cringe and nervous laugh. He also talks about himself in the 3rd person because it seems more professional.

Ross lives on the UK/Eire border in Ireland, where he moved from England in 2001, hoping the rain will help his hair grow back.

A year is, perhaps, a touch too long; but leaving your work to sit for a couple of days or a week will usually help. Otherwise, writing another scene or a short story might. Even going back to the start of the book and just reading it.(less)

Being a god.

Also the freedom. Especially with sci-fi, I - and my characters - can do whatever I want, wherever I want; I am unconstrained. Anything I imagine, can become a reality of sorts. If, along the way, the books entertain and/or amuse people, all the better.(less)

I should probably have written this right after I actually saw Avengers: Infinity War, but...I didn't. But I have seen it and it was fine. Nothing overly special but vastly better than Age of Ultron and Civil War - each tied for worst Marvel film.

Bram Stoker
“There are darknesses in life and there are lights, and you are one of the lights, the light of all lights.”
Bram Stoker, Dracula

George R.R. Martin
“I think there are two types of writers, the architects and the gardeners. The architects plan everything ahead of time, like an architect building a house. They know how many rooms are going to be in the house, what kind of roof they're going to have, where the wires are going to run, what kind of plumbing there's going to be. They have the whole thing designed and blueprinted out before they even nail the first board up. The gardeners dig a hole, drop in a seed and water it. They kind of know what seed it is, they know if planted a fantasy seed or mystery seed or whatever. But as the plant comes up and they water it, they don't know how many branches it's going to have, they find out as it grows. And I'm much more a gardener than an architect.”
George R.R. Martin

Anne Frank
“Despite everything, I believe people are really good at heart.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Gustave Flaubert
“Do not read as children do to enjoy themselves, or, as the ambitious do to educate themselves. No, read to live.”
Gustave Flaubert

Leo Tolstoy
“He stepped down, trying not to look long at her, as if she were the sun, yet he saw her, like the sun, even without looking.”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
