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).

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)
