Russell Brooks is the author of the thrillers, Pandora's Succession, Unsavory Delicacies, Chill Run, and The Demeter Code.

Russell has been compared to a young Robert Ludlum in the way that he wrote Pandora's Succession and Unsavory Delicacies.

After having read an excerpt of Chill Run, here's what one British reader had to say:

"If you like Elmore Leonard, you will love 'Chill Run'. Its snappy dialogue evokes 'Rum Punch' (filmed as Jackie Brown) and 'Get Shorty', and the plot carries the same tonal qualities of the Donald E Westlake thriller 'The Hunter' (filmed as Payback). As ever with Brooks, you can expect meticulous plotting and surprising twists. And, as with 'Pandora's Succession' and 'Unsavory Delicacies,' the end will have you going

Hello, Salisa,

Not exactly. I wanted to be several things, I just wasn't sure which one. I used to run track, but I kept getting sidelined with injuries later in my career, so I stopped. There was also a time when I wanted to be a lawyer, then an actor. When I began writing, I almost gave it up because the industry--at the time--was so difficult to get into. Then I stumbled onto my content editor's website. We chatted and then she taught me a few things to get me started.(less)

Last Sunday as I was heading home from the gym, I spotted the billboard you see above. How did I react? I was both insulted and was furious considering that there was an underlying message that propagated a racist stereotype that the only true Quebecers are White and French. The impact the billboard had on me was significant since I—like many other Quebecers of foreign ancestry—were at some poi... Read more of this blog post »
