I look forward to my visit to Quimby Middle School this afternoon to talk with students who are writing a novel this month for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). I love meeting fellow writers and answering questions they may have about every aspect of writing and self-publishing.

With love,

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.

    One other thing Russ, I hired a literary atty to help with agreements/contracts that I have received for my children’s manuscript. Yea!!! This part of the “business” of writing is new and at times a bit overwhelming for me, but one day at a time. All a part of learning.
