I just received an email announcing that my story Afterglow has been accepted for inclusion into a Halloween-themed anthology. I’ve just sent a rough draft of the story to an editor, but you can read it in its present form at Imaginings of a Grateful Man 


With Love,


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.
