Hello, I'm Heather Robinson-Ross, and welcome to my website.
From an early age, my passion for film and television was ignited by a serendipitous encounter. When I was just 12 years old, my mother took me along to a local Access Cable shoot, and I was instantly captivated. It was a magical experience that solidified my dream of working in the television industry. Despite my young age, I eagerly awaited my workers permit, and as soon as it arrived, I joined the crew as the proud keeper of the "boom" microphone. I wore a beaming smile as if entrusted with carrying the Olympic torch.
Following my move from Littleton, Colorado to Tucson, Arizona, I completed high school and embarked on a career at America Online (AOL). It was during this time that fate intervened once again. In an online chat room, I had the extraordinary opportunity to meet the talented actress and writer, Carrie Fisher. She encouraged me to write a screenplay based on my experiences as a teenager growing up with a single mother. As if the universe conspired in my favor, Marc Platt and his production company decided to bring my screenplay to life as a feature film titled "The Perfect Man." This Universal Pictures production enjoyed a worldwide release and starred notable actors such as Hilary Duff, Heather Locklear, and Chris Noth.
Throughout my journey, I have collaborated with various non-profit organizations, including Wright Flight, Good Ride, the Alzheimer's Association in Denver, and most recently, EndCAN.
In addition to my film and advocacy work, I am currently writing a book titled,
"The Oh Swell Hotel." The book chronicles my experience of living in a hotel for a year while my husband, Lt. Colonel Gary Ross, received chemotherapy treatment for his terminal cancer, Waldenstrom's disease. It's a deeply personal account that explores love, resilience, humor and the strength of the human spirit.
Thank you for joining me on this exciting journey, and I invite you to explore my website further to learn more about my work and projects.
