Hello, I’m A.T. Russell. I was raised in a suburb on Chicago’s southside. Consistent with being a southsider, I’m a White Sox, Bears, and Bulls fan. I enlisted in the U.S. Navy after high school, retiring as a Chief after 22 years of active service. Today I live near Chicago with my wife of 23 years and have two children in college.
Having been an avid reader since my teenage years, I longed for a story to be written from the characters’ perspective. Not fully understanding how difficult that was, I embarked on a journey that led to my second greatest passion - writing. While searching for a publisher for my supposed polished novel, I found one I really liked. To my surprise, they liked my urban fantasy novel, Sacred Puppies, and offered to publish it. They are The Little Things Publishing who will release Sacred Puppies in spring 2012.
I also write for Ring Of Fire Books. My New Alpha Rising Saga will be published there, as well as other compilations. My greatest writing joy has come from developing anthologies with other writers. Check out 7DS on my links page to follow that part of my imaginative prose. I hope you’ll enjoy the stories I write as much as I enjoy writing them. Thanks for stopping by and checking me out, too. Before you go, take a look at my Links page and see other writers, bloggers, and more that I enjoy. They write good stuff, too. Use my Contact A.T. page to reach me.

There is a world hidden within ours--a world of magnificient and noble beasts, and the enemies who would do them harm. Werewolves live secretly among us, but to each other they are open and united. Like the animals whose essence they share, Weres are pack animals . . . and every pack has its Alpha. When Chatran Dartun is discovered, and he realizes what he truly is, there is a NEW ALPHA RISING. Here begins the story of his ASCENSION.
