About the author:
E.J. Russell was born in Salisbury, England and moved to Greece when she was just two weeks old and baptized there. She was fortunate enough to enjoy both the stunning natural beauty of Greece and a first class education back in Sevenoaks, England.
She went on to study BA English and Art History at Manchester University and then continued on to get an MA Publishing at Plymouth University.
She has traveled throughout Europe, Asia and America, doing all kinds of work, everything from contract work with the BBC, glass collecting in bars and even at one point, working for the now notorious Madoff company in Mayfair, London.
Writing and poetry are a way of life, film scripts being a current interest.
The novel is available worldwide via Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple, Sony and many other online book stores.
