​​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-six-year career in those combined fields.  Ronald resides in Charlotte, NC with Tammy, his loving wife of 23 years, two children, Jessica and William, and two dogs, Jada, and Sara.
