Katherine (Kate) Ross was the author of the successful Julian Kestrel mystery series, a graduate of Wellesley College and the Yale law school, and was a trial lawyer for the Boston law firm of Sullivan & Worcester.
After a long battle with cancer, Kate passed away on March 12, 1998. Kate and I had corresponded via e-mail for over two years becoming good friends in the process. She was a wonderful friend, and I miss her.
Sincerely and for the last time Virgil.
