About the Author
The son of a career sailor and a wanna-be nurse, he was raised on the beaches of San Diego listening to sea stories and fearing a stomach ache. Nurse Russell only got as far as enema 101 in nursing school and thought it would cure just about anything. It sure cured complaining.
After a stretch in the Marines, he spent his working life in the deserts of the Southwest. He’s been a technical artist, draftsman, designer, air conditioning mechanic and contractor. Always a kind of gypsy, he’s lived in a great many places too; Hawaii, Los Angeles, Saint Louis, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Atlanta, Yuma and an eight-year stint in that summer playground, Death Valley.
Now he resides on the plains in the little city of Huron, South Dakota, with his new wife, Norelle, a life-long resident. Bill seems to have a fascination with the historical period from 1900 to mid century and that greatest of human emotions, love. Most of his stories feature love, action, adventure and history as a recurring theme, all presented on an authentic background, painted in broad strokes after research or through personal experience.
