About russtowne

I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.

      Thank you for honoring my site in this wonderful way. For a variety of reasons–including to give newer bloggers a greater opportunity to receive them–I no longer accept blogging awards for my site. I appreciate your kindness in giving this award to me. May you always feel welcome here.
