I am a Marine Corps veteran currently writing stories about knights, Elves, Dragons, and the occasional futuristic super-soldier. I am currently working on The Judges Cycle, an epic fantasy that takes place in the biblical Land of Nod, during a time when the history of their realm is all but forgotten by its inhabitants. My short fiction, which includes some horror, thriller, and a military sci-fi adventure, is featured in the "Never Fear" and "Uncharted Worlds" anthologies.
When not writing, I enjoy lifting weights, running, skiing, playing various Warhammer-related games, and listening to too much heavy metal. I have a beagle, a French bulldog, and two cats who are likely descended from mighty sabertooth. I like a good steak and don't even try having a conversation with me when eating crab leg. My favorite beer is Smithwick's. My wife thinks I'm cool. My favorite Italian restaurant in Romania is Crinul Alb. Ummm... Let's see... What else? If you like looking at the stars and constellations, you should definitely download the SkyView app. Ok, I think that's all the rambling I have for one night. If you want to read more of my rambling, see pictures of cute dogs, photos of nostalgic sci-fi and fantasy, or the occasional Marine Corps motivational post, be sure to follow me on Facebook and Twitter. I also have a website that I update every now and again: https://readaidanrussell.com
