JAMES A. ROSS, an author from Jackson, Wyoming, joined us to discuss his writing career, and his debut novel, "Hunting Teddy Roosevelt", as well as his "Coldwater" series.


"Storytelling is fun, but it never paid the bills. To take care of necessities, I’ve at various times been a Peace Corps volunteer in the Congo, a low-level staffer for a Midwestern Congressman and a three-piece suited Wall Street lawyer and deal maker. Hey, it was a living. These days I write from my home in the Teton Valley of Wyoming, where elk and other four-legged residents outnumber the two-legged variety by ten to one, and the patrons of the local cowboy bars appreciate a well-told tall tale.My short fiction has appeared in numerous literary journals and has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. I have been a guest storyteller on the Moth Main Stage and a several times winner of the live storytelling competition, Cabin Fever Story Slam.

My debut historical novel, HUNTING TEDDY ROOSEVELT, won the American Book Festival Fiction Award for historical adventure, the Independent Press Distinguished Favorite award for historical fiction, the Firebird Book Award for action/adventure, and was a finalist for the National Indie Excellence Award for historical fiction and shortlisted for a Goethe Historical Fiction Award. My debut mystery novel, COLDWATER REVENGE won the American Book Festival Fiction Award for mystery/suspense: hardboiled crime and the Firebird Book Award for legal/thrillers. The second book in the series, COLDWATER CONFESSION, is scheduled for release in April 2022."
