​​Author Ronald J Rossmann Jr.

​​​​​​​          The Crux is author Ronald J Rossmann Jr.’s second novel.  His first self-published work is The Lost Road to Hope, an apocalyptic tale featuring heroes who are cancer survivors, inspired by his mother’s three-year battle with the disease. 

       He is a lifelong fan of science fiction and fantasy with the genre first introduced to him by his Uncle Phillip.  At sixteen, he conceived the concept of The Crux and after a twenty-seven-year labor of love, involving numerous revisions and evolutions, the story finally came to its complete fruition.  This is the first installment in a six-part series with two upcoming sequels and three prequels.  


    Ronald studied theology and psychology in college but became thoroughly intrigued by retail and restaurant management which led to a successful twenty-three-year career in those combined fields.  He is currently the general manager at Lake Wylie Bowl and Bounce, a family entertainment center located in Lake Wylie, SC.  Ronald resides in Charlotte, NC with Tammy, his loving wife of 23 years, two children, Jessica and William, and two dogs, Jada, and Sara.
