Paul Andrew Russell is an English poet and writer. He was born and raised in a small mining village in the beautiful county of Derbyshire. He spent the first forty years of his life in and around the place of his birth, before moving to St John’s, Newfoundland in 2003.
He recently published his first collection of poetry Pocketful of Words available on Lulu.com.
He has also had work published in the UK’s Daily Telegraph newspaper, the now defunct Club Saint George online ex-pat magazine, where he was the Canadian contributor; and three of his flash fiction stories have appeared on the ‘fiction on the go‘ website CommuterLit.com.
One of his poems, Rituals, was selected as Poem of the Week for the Poets United online magazine. Rituals is also included in Poets United’s first poetry anthology in print; Thoughts That Breathe, released in early 2011.
More Than A Flash Of Fiction is a companion to A Flash of Fiction, published earlier this year; a collection of six original short stories culled from the pages of his blog. It is available on Lulu.com as an eBook download.
Paul is currently working on a haiku collection, a crime novel, collection of flash fiction and a memoir. He is also editing and organising his second collection of poetry.
