About the Author
The Happy Home Seller

Ross Wilson‘s first inclination to write emerged at the tender age of 10 when he penned a little boy’s adventure story. To him, it was exciting stuff. But it was a decade later before his skills were officially recognized when, while attending Sheridan College, he was awarded the Archdeacon W.P. Robertson Prize in English. Since then, he has regularly contributed to magazines and Real Estate Monthly (REM), a national trade newspaper, and enjoyed a sojourn as a columnist with a small town newspaper. Also amongst his accomplishments was the successful publication of The Happy Agent, a version of this book, dedicated to helping real estate agents achieve success in the business. It was awarded #1 Best Seller on Amazon.
