COMMITTED: A MEMOIR OF THE ARTIST'S ROAD is a unique contribution to the annals of the literary memoir genre. It tells the story of a Washington, D.C. journalist-turned-lobbyist who struggles with the legacy of a dysfunctional family history and heads out on a five-week cross-country U.S. road trip, engaging with creative and generous individuals who trigger in the author a yearning to pursue an authentic and creative art-committed life. COMMITTED was published in 2014 by Black Rose Writing, and signed copies are available via Amazon

I am currently writing an urban fantasy/suspense trilogy. I am pitching the first novel, THE UNMOVING STARS, and am hard at work on the second, THE UNSEEN WAR.

Beautiful Landscape
Committed: A Memoir of the Artist’s Road is a wonderful, triumphant book! I love the portraits of the people and places, both of which come alive as the book builds to a vivid crescendo. Patrick Ross is a skilled literary journalist.” — Sara Mansfield Taber, award-winning author of Born Under an Assumed Name: The Memoir of a Cold-War Spy’s Daughter
