About Me

Russell Smith

I have always had a love for literature though this is my first time publishing novels. In high school, my guidance counsellor convinced me to study engineering and education, reminding me that many of my favourite authors (Richard Adams, Jack London, Farley Mowat) had a lot of life experience before writing the works I loved. So I plugged away at creating the world of Ferus’s Gifts while I had the priviledge to work with Youth With A Mission overseas with clean water issues (where I met my incredible wife), and in northern Ontario with a community centre on an Anishnaabek community. I currently live in southern Ontario with my wife and son where I provide debriefing and other care to third culture kids and cross cultural workers and am finally taking the time to see this dream of publishing my novels become a reality.
