Mary Laurel Ross

mary_laurel_rossAuthor of VEILED HONOR

Mary Laurel Ross is a native of Arizona and a graduate of Arizona State University. Married to a career military officer, her life’s adventure includes travel to six continents and exposure to vastly divergent cultures. A highly-respected educator for twenty-seven years, she taught in five states and in the Saudi Arabian International School-Riyadh. Its multi-national staff and three thousand student enrollment represented at least fifty nations and facilitated her many warm friendships and shared confidences with women whose customs and religions were diametrically opposed to her own Judeo/Christian background.

Now retired along with her husband of forty years and having put memories to pen, the author shares her wealth of experience in speaking engagements to cultural diversity classes, women’s groups, and social events. Her interests include adult literacy, gardening, and her three grandchildren for whom she writes children’s stories.
