“Where books had been a comfort before, they became a necessity, old books best of all: thick heavy tomes with stories that spread and twisted through other worlds, where he could walk like a ghost in the footsteps of other lives.” ― Alexia Casale

I love walking in the footsteps of others as a reader, and as a writer, giving readers the opportunity to walk in my footsteps and those of my characters.

With Love,
Russ
