Ted Gross was born and raised in Manhattan, New York City and in 1978, moved to Israel, and currently resides in Jerusalem.
In 2002, Ted as a reserve battlefield medic ended up in Jenin, and the battles that took place there became front-page news all over the world and the book (as of yet unpublished) "Three Weeks In Jenin" is a graphic experience of what was experienced in this village during that time.
"Ancient Tales, Modern Legends" is a collection of short stories which were written over a period of many years and is available in Kindle Books and in Paperback. Ted's love of the short story art-form is apparent in this book. His early reading was greatly influenced by I.B. Singer, O'Henry, Cheever and Vonnegut.
He currently is working on the "Chronicles of the Children of Heaven" (a fantasy work) which the first Volume "A Tale That Is Told - Part 1" has been released on Kindle and in Paperback.
A second collection of short stories is to be released as well, within the next 9 months.
Over the years short stories by Ted have been published in various venues. "A Pot Of Gold" was published by Istoria Books (in their "Lunch Reads 4) with excellent reviews and is available on Amazon Kindle as well.
