Edmonds-based author David R. Gross announced Monday he is releasing a new book based on his popular My Edmonds News column, “Travels with Charlize: In Search of Living Alone.”
“Travels with Charlize: In Search of Living Alone,” chronicles the retired veterinarian’s road trips with his new rescue dog, Charlize, after losing his wife of 52 years, Rosalie, to cancer. The book will be available in early February through Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and independent bookstores. The Kindle e-book edition is currently available for purchase, soon to be followed by versions for Kobo and Nook.
Gross was a practicing veterinarian for 10 years before he returned to school to earn his Ph.D. in cardiovascular physiology, after which he taught and did research in that field for more than three decades. He has published over 90 papers in refereed scientific journals and over 100 abstracts in proceedings of scientific meetings.
Since retirement, he has been busy writing both fiction and non-fiction. His published books include “Manhunt” (historical fiction), “Animals Don’t Blush” (a memoir of his first year in veterinary practice) and the soon-to-be re-released, “Succeeding As A Student
(a self-help guide to efficient and effective studying, learning and test taking).
