Russell Heidorn


Russell Heidorn lives in suburban Minneapolis and scatters his time between working and family while pursuing his dream of writing music and fiction. He has received enough success to think he might have some untapped talent hidden deep inside but also enough rejection to realize his hadn’t found it yet. Oh, he could flaunt about how his songs have received local airplay and how he won an award from the Music City Song Festival, but it’s not like record producers are pounding down his door. He could also brag about how his writing has been in local publications but it’s not like agents are pounding down his door. He even replaced his solid oak door with a flimsy fiberglass one to make it easier but still no takers. Currently, he is working on a novel about a suburban man who scatters his time between work and family while pursuing his dream of music and writing. However, it is speculative fiction and any resemblance to persons living or dead is purely coincidental.

A fun little story I wrote in the late 80's about what it might be like if Toto played on the Death Star for Darth Vader's Birthday.

I edited it a little bit, but otherwise it’s the same story I wrote years ago.
