About E L Russell

Educated in mathematics and trained in research, I have spent ten years researching and writing White Papers for corporations on emerging technologies. My current writings reflect an eclectic interest in the impact these new technologies may impose on individuals and social groups. My latest research into programming genetic code and brain development has led three series of Science Fiction techno thrillers about reprogramming the human genome and micro genome by the next species of human: Homo Evolutis.
My wife, E C Russell is my co-writer and developmental editor. Our stories cover the spectrum from YA to NA.
Each series of novels is supported by several short stories and stand alone novellas that depict people dealing with the personal and social consequences of their emergence into a new human species, Homo Evolutis. With the ability to re-program inheritable genetic code and acquired immunity to disease, Evolutis fulfills its destiny as the first species to be self-healing and self-evolving. Through logical extensions of genomic science, new powers emerge, including the ultimate social-network and possibility of immortality.
The Evolutis Rising Series: Deadly Awakenings, Deadly Discovery, and Deadly Conflict tell the story of the emergence and self-discovery of Evolutis through the experiences of a scientific community.
The Cohort Series: OnSet, ReSet, and MindSet tell the story of Chloe, a young athlete and medical student, paralyzed from the waist down in a bike accident fearful that the voices she hears means she has onset schizophrenia, discovers the ability to heal herself and others with her mind. A science fiction medical thriller follows the emergence of Homo Evolutis from a medical perspective.
The Seeker Series: three novels involving time and space travel follow the story of nineteen year old Finna from the day she wins the squire’s tournament held in Vézelay, France, 1145, to become one of Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine’s 300 women warriors in the Second Crusade. As Finna the Seeker, she survives feudal combat, the plague, and trials of travel and adventure through 600 years. She endures to take her role as a leader of a new species of human, Homo Evolutis, into the galaxy to combating galactic corporations and rogue elements seeking control over people and resources.

Review by: Red Jackson on Sep. 4, 2013 :
I felt that the ending could have been stronger. The foreshadowing was very bold and threatened to ensure predictability. Even so, the story maintained conflict and mystery right to the last page. A rewrite, as mentioned by another reviewer, would improve the story but it's pretty good the way it is right now. I would recommend this story for a quick read. Thanks for offering this free short story.

Interesting premise, but the story drags. Revision with a "show, don't tell" approach would help the reader connect with the character and the setting with more engagement. I'd be interested in reading the story again after a rewrite.

Fluent and funny. I was led to it by my interest in the theory of why something is funny. Even wrote a book about it. Has to do with winning I think. Write more please.
