Faith Black Ross (Crooked Lane Books)

Senior Editor Faith Black Ross has been with Crooked Lane Books for the past year and a half after more than a decade in publishing. Previously she handled mysteries and historical fiction for the Berkley Publishing Group (Penguin Random House). She’s looking for traditional mysteries and cozies of all shapes and sizes, historical and international mysteries, amateur and female sleuths, as well as thrillers, particularly those of a psychological, suspenseful, and/or historical variety. She is particularly interested in mystery projects with strong voices, precocious protagonists, and a touch of humor–dark humor included.
