Penguin Random House, Michael McConnell

"...Victory is a talented writer. He has written a compelling page-turner in a style that is personally reflective. Victory’s representation of his father bursts with love and awe. The questions of family, loyalty, honor, and truth emerge and will resonate with just about everyone. With an incredible ending that you must read to believe, this book does not disappoint." 

Writer's Digest, Nicole Howard

"I’m overwhelmed by the *gorgeous* language in this book...descriptive magic that reminds me of Alice Sebold’s breathtaking phrasing. So many stellar descriptions stopped me in my tracks so that I could turn the phrasing around and around in appreciation. Very well done. As the sensory details continue to bring the story to life, we find ourselves carried along in a fine cadence, as the plot progresses well, with no lulls in the middle. There is never a weak portion of the story."

Sefina Hawke's Books

​"Views from the Cockpit: The Journey of a Son was a well-written memoir that touched on topics that affect many people today...I can only hope I never have to experience such things."

ANR Music Factory

"...excruciatingly rare ability to hook you into the verses and share plenty of imagery, emotion, and soul."

Buzz Music
"...smokey vocals, captivating melodies, and a soulful delivery."

Indie Band Guru

"The power of an artist is their willingness to share intimate pieces of their own lives in their art. Our recent find Ross Victory spreads his message even further with both song and the written word."


J. Ross Victory (Ross) is an American author, singer/songwriter, travel enthusiast and author of the father-son memoir, Views from the Cockpit: The Journey of a Son. He spent his early years collecting pens, notepads and interviewing himself in a tape recorder. With an acute awareness for his young age, Ross was eager to point out hypocrisies and character inconsistencies in children and adults through English assignments. If he weren’t keeping his English teachers on their toes for what he would say or write next, he was processing his world through songwriting and music.
