Allan Gross has been described as a Renaissance Man. Writing is just one of his interests. Allan first earned degrees in electrical and biomedical engineering, working as a successful software designer. His avocation of writing blossomed through his association with Insight Studios. In addition to writing for major comic book companies and television, Allan has lived a childhood dream and written Tarzan stories, both in comic book form and for the syndicated newspaper strip. This work earned praise from academics and Edgar Rice Burroughs fans alike, and Allan is very proud of his prestigious "Golden Lion Award" from the Burroughs Bibliophiles.

The most rewarding aspect of writing for Allan has been the creation of emotionally satisfying projects in collaboration with his friends and Insight Studios. These works include the comic book Doctor Cyborg (collected in the graphic novels, The Clone Conspiracy and Outpatient) and the novella "Bride of the Beast Man" in Titnaic Tales. Since then, Allan wrote the definitive biography on Insight Studios, a profusely illustrated coffee table art book called IS ART: The Art of Insight Studios. He also collaborated on the writing and editing of the retrospective art book on Gary Morrow's life and career, Gray Morrow: Visionary.

Allan is currently working with Jerry Carr on Cryptozoo Crew, which has been published as comic books and two graphic novels. This project will continue as on-line comics and is currently being developed as a screenplay. Manga fans may be familiar with a line of books written by Allan for Tokyopop, Inc. called Roadsong. These books pull from another of Allan's passions and experience, as an avid singer and songwriter who has performed in a variety of bands.

In his spare time, Allan has completed a Master's Degree in Education and is enjoying tutoring mathematics, planning to "retire" one day into teaching. If you meet Allan at a convention, or contact him over the Internet, be prepared to discuss any one of his passions, including numerous conspiracy theories, such as the Shakespeare Authorship controversy or modern-day topics such as Peak Oil or politics.
