Russell has enjoyed both reading and writing from a young age.  He continued to write during high school
and college, later graduating from College with a B.S. after studying Zoology and Economics. 

After graduation Russell had a difficult time finding a job in his field.  He decided to take this as an opportunity and make a serious attempt at writing.  He spent his off hours developing the ideas that would later form his first series "Under the Nine Suns."  During that time what began as a hobby blossomed into a passion.  Russell is excited to share his first series with you.

While not writing Russell enjoys hiking and volunteering at local sleddog races.  Russell has a long standing love affair with cars and can occasionally be found attending open track days at local race courses.
