I'm Ross Beresford
aka Crossword Man
, a lifelong crossword puzzle addict from Oxford, England. After mastering cryptic crosswords, I became editor of The Listener Crossword
- the toughest of them all. I've also edited and proofread numerous crossword dictionaries and compilations. I'm the author of TEA
- Windows software for solving and compiling crosswords.
In 2007 I married Magdalen Braden
and emigrated to the USA. We live in the historic Laban Capron House
in the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania. Now that I've settled into this strange country, I'm discovering a whole new world of crosswords. The Crossword Man Blog
described my transition from a British to an American crossword puzzle solver.
