Gabriele Russo, AKA Lucie-Gabrielle Jolicoeur-Rousseau, was born in Quebec City amidst a family of book lovers – her father had dreamed of being a writer and both of her brothers are published authors.

Since she earned her Bachelor’s in History, it was no surprise (except to her) that she ended up working in restaurants, eventually owning two, which almost drove her mad. She sold them and was nursed back to pseudo-sanity by Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett.
That’s when she answered the family calling and decided to write. Armed with her ideas for the Gods Inc. series she went back to the University and got her Master’s in Creative Writing.

He was a German living in Silesia (which is now part of Poland), and at the end of the Second World War, fearing the Russian invasion, he sent my grandfather and his family away to the west. He chose to remain to protect the family estate and was never heard from again.(less)

The Meeting




A tense spring in her step, Loviatar got out of the elevator and made her way to the CEO’s office. As usual, walking down this corridor seemed to cause her ribcage to shrink and squeeze her lungs.
Oh, how she missed the Halls of Asgard: so vast, so dark, the only light the glow of the lovely bleached human bones sticking out of the pillars holding the roof. Infinitely better than these close w Read more of this blog post »

“Lucifer had been ranting his endless laundry list of complaints for forty-five minutes now, and Louhi still didn’t know exactly what she was supposed to apologize for. There was something about her plant having eaten his cape while he had been waiting, as for the rest… She wished she could read an immortal’s thoughts, but their brains were constructs, simulations… Which actually explained a lot.”
Gabriele Russo, Incompetent Gods

“The poor guy had been sucked like a Mr. Freeze. Loviatar was humming and picking her teeth with a fingernail.
When she saw Lara’s glance at the remains, she stroked her waist. “Epidermis is very fattening, and polyester gives the worst heartburn.”
Gabriele Russo, Inclement Gods

“Today was “ananthropomorphic day”: once a month, the gods got to take a holiday from humdrum humanoid shapes and look any way they wanted. Since most gods are versatile shape-shifters and/or have god-awful taste in clothing, this meant that temporary blindness or at least a good headache was lurking around every corner. It was meant to boost morale. It usually sank his.”
Gabriele Russo, Incompetent Gods

“The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.”
Terry Pratchett, Diggers

“Give a man a fire and he's warm for a day, but set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life.”
Terry Pratchett, Jingo

“Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.”
Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time

“A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.”
Douglas Adams, Mostly Harmless

“Would it save you a lot of time if I just gave up and went mad now?”
