Dallas Morning News article:
‘Open arms, hearts and minds’

Plano author Gayle Ross will sign copies of her new book, Onyx Out Loud: Rainbow People on Dec. 12 at Half Price Books, 3221 Preston Road in Frisco.

Ross, is a proud sixth-generation Texan with degrees in communications and English. She has spent the majority of her time rearing Brandon, her hearing-impaired son with Asperger’s, and learning about his life challenges. Brandon is a graduate of The University of North Texas, with an honors certification in cyber-security from Collin College.
The second book in Ross’ Onyx Out Loud series encourages acceptance of all children. She believes that being introduced to people with unique differences as children would generate more acceptance as preteens and teenagers, hopefully eliminating bullying.

“Perhaps the children reading the Onyx Out Loud series will be the first generation to accept all people with open arms, hearts and minds,” she said.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, at, and
A runner-up at Miss Texas in the 1990s, Ross also writes contemporary/inspirational romance novels and will be doing an online blog tour for her latest, The Strength of Love, the week of Dec. 14, under pen name G.L. Ross.

The Onyx Out Loud Mission

The Onyx Out Loud mission is to teach and encourage acceptance to children. My belief is that if children are introduced to people, with “unique” differences, the initial shock will not be there when they are pre-teens and teenagers. If the shock and awareness is eliminated, at that “intense” age, then bullying will be eliminated. Perhaps the children reading the Onyx Out Loud series will be the first generation to accept all people with open arms, hearts, and minds.



“Onyx enjoyed meeting the Texas Deaf Educators at the
Statewide Conference for Educators of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in San
Antonio, TX. Onyx and his friends are looking forward to sharing Onyx’s message
of teaching acceptance!”
