You can return to check out more on who he is, what he’s writing, and how to buy his future work. I am pleased to present the very talented Russ Towne. You’ll find out more if you read one of his published books, but as two teasers read the reviews I’ve already written on his children’s books Wilbur the Duck Who Flew Upside Down and Sir Alex Sleighs a Dragon.
Russ is an incredibly gifted writer and a true gentleman. He and I connected about 4 months ago through a fellow blogger who thought we might want to chat given we both worked in the business world and turned to writing at some point in our careers. We followed one another’s blogs, chatted a bit, then he sent me two of his books (hardcover)! I was so excited when they arrived in the mail. After I read the first one, I brought it with me to visit family in Louisiana and shared it with younger nephews and nieces who will in turn share it with others. I have his second book on my shelf and will show it to friends with kids when they visit me in NYC. His books are beyond creative… they have lessons children can learn in a fun way.
He’s quite prolific as you’ll see below… and I am excited to check out some of his other fiction. Let’s turn today’s blog over to him and see what he has to say…
Russ lives with his wife in Campbell, California, USA. They’ve been married since 1979, have three adult children and five grandchildren. His passions include family, friends, writing and investing. Russ wrote his first book in 2013 when he was fifty-six and has written and published dozens of books that can be found on Amazon.com and elsewhere.
Russ delights in seeing the expressions on the faces of young children and their loved ones as they experience his children’s picture, early reader, and chapter books. He enjoys reading his stories in classrooms, schools, libraries, and anywhere young children gather. Russ revels in interacting with youngsters, answering their questions, and inspiring a love within them for the magic of reading and writing.
Russ savors experiencing nature, especially near rivers and streams that run through giant redwood groves, and near beautiful beaches. He enjoys watching classic movies, reading, and visiting his tiny fern garden and redwood grove.
