Ross Klatte grew up on a Minnesota family farm. After service in the U.S. Navy and obtaining a degree in journalism from the University of Minnesota, he worked as a reporter and editor in Chicago and Detroit before emigrating with his wife to Canada in 1971.
In 1990 he won first prize in the personal essay division of the CBC Literary Competition, and in 2011 was short-listed for the Journey Prize. He has since completed a novel and is looking for a publisher.
