Russell Perry… A short introduction.
I was born in the tropics of North Queensland, Australia, in the small coastal town of Innisfail, just south of Cairns. Warm, Sunny, a lot of rain in the monsoon season, but an Idyllic place to grow up. Swimming and diving on the reef, fishing and exploring the plethora of creeks and rivers which gurgle through the ancient rain forests of the far north.
I worked in Marketing and Sales for most of my adult life, moving to the State Capital, Brisbane, as a young adult, to further my career. I continue to live there today with most of my close family.
I still do a bit of marketing, mostly web based these days. However I’m now devoting more and more time to my love of writing stories.
I’ve always been an avid reader of fiction, enjoying many genres, from Historical Sagas to Visionary Fiction and Science Fiction. Favorite authors, over the years, have included writers as varied as Bryce Courtenay and Wilbur Smith, to Stephen King and Dean Koontz, and it is in a similar genre to the latter, that my first offerings are written, although there is an historical saga on the drawing board, and I’m currently trying my hand at an MG Fiction story for my Grandchildren.
I have a new joy in my life these days, and I will write for ever.
Please try my first offerings , The Returning Series of books. Two have been published so far and the characters are urging to be let out for another run. Who knows how many there are to come.
If you come back for more you will help this author to live his dream.
I published my first book, “The Returning” in 2011, and now the sequel in 2013. They are both for sale, around the world, in print and eBook, through Amazon.com (Print & Kindle), Smashwords (eBook in all formats), Barnes & Noble (Print & Nook), and many other online book stores, including Booktopia (Print), in Australia, just waiting for people to discover them.
