“I wanted to be a mime but I talked myself out of it.”

Mel Rosen (born circa 1945)

A former IBM programmer, Rosen is one of today’s elite cruciverbalists and has constructed crossword puzzles for The New York Times, The Washington Post, and many other newspapers. His puzzles have appeared in many anthologies and are famous for their understated wit. He is now freelance and much in demand. He wrote The Random House Puzzle Maker’s Handbook, helping to raise public awareness of his arcane profession. An amateur jazz keyboardist, he plays weekly at a restaurant near his Naples, Florida home.
