Russell H. Plante is an Engineering Physicist with a diverse engineering and academic background in Engineering Physics, Electrical Engineering, and Business Administration. A skilled technical writer, he is a previously published author with John Wiley & Sons, Inc. and Academic Press (Elsevier) and continues to write in both non-fiction and fiction genres. He resides with his wife Kathy and their three cats in Kittery, Maine where there’s always a chance of a blizzard and some time to write meaningful stories during a long cold winter.
Discarded by an uncaring owner and left homeless without food or shelter, Patches wanders the streets piecing his life back together. Late one night during a violent blizzard, he jumps into a dumpster only to be ensnared by the steel jaws of a leg-trap, and the fear of dying becomes reality. Will he survive the cold darkness and discover once again a path that leads to the understanding he seeks?
