About the Author
His law enforcement career began as a reserve deputy with the Tom Green County Sheriff's Department in 1977 and ended when he retired as the San Angelo's Police Chief in 1999. This experience spurred his professional writing career when he sold his first article to a police trade magazine in 1980.
Russell spent five years as an outdoor columnist for the San Angelo Standard-Times and several magazines. He received numerous awards for his writing and photography from the Texas Outdoor Writers' Association. The Gun That Wasn't There was his first non-fiction book. His second was No Reason to Kill; about the murder of Sheila Elrod, a 20-year-old San Angelo girl killed during a jewelry store robbery in 1980. His third is One Policeman's Lights and Siren.
Russell and his wife Linda live in San Angelo, Texas. They have two married children and four grandchildren.
