Ruth Belov Gross was born March 1, 1929, in Philadelphia, PA. She became a medical writer, but in 1970 wrote a children's book, beginning a new career. When writing 'The Emperor's New Clothes,' for example, she compared nine different translations paragraph by paragraph, before she began her own retelling.
