About the Author

Aimee Ross is a nationally award-winning educator who has been a high school English teacher for the past twenty-five years and an aspiring writer for as long as she can remember. She completed her MFA in Creative Non-Fiction Writing at Ashland University in 2014, but she also dabbles in fiction and poetry. Her writing has been published on, www.SixHens.Com, and in "Scars: An Anthology" (Et Alia Press, 2015); "Today I Made a Difference: A Collection of Inspirational Stories from America's Top Educators" (Adams Media, 2009); and Teaching Tolerance magazine.


"Aimee Ross possesses an indomitable spirit and fierce humor that breathe new life into every page."

--Jill Christman, author of Darkroom and Borrowed Babies: Apprenticing for Motherhood (08/14/2017)
"Aimee's story reminds us that even when our truths don't reveal themselves in the ways we wish they would, we can always choose how those truths shape, rather than define, our lives."--Darin Strauss, author of "Half a Life"

Aimee Ross sees the patterns of literature weaving through life. So when she is slammed with catastrophes that shatter her body and threaten her soul, she finds signposts to recovery through foreshadowing, symbols and yes, irony-- which makes hers not just a resurrection story, but one laced with laughs.

"Filled with brutal honesty, heartbreak and humor, Aimee Ross' gut-wrenching story is an inspiring portrait of strength and resilience. Aimee, a truly gifted, creative and award-winning high school teacher, discovers that it was her students who help her abandon her fears, renew her passion for teaching, and find the joy and meaning in her spared life... sharing a lesson that can help any one of us in our personal or professional life."

--Debra Hurst, 2016 National Teachers Hall of Fame Inductee

"Aimee Ross spares no details in her raw, unflinching account of what it means to have your life torn apart--physically and emotionally. Permanent Marker is a remarkable story of healing, courage, and finding the strength it takes to rewrite your life's story."

--Tina Neidlein, humor writer and author of "The Girl's Guide" and "It's a Mom Thing"
