JD has been writing for some years, publishing none of his work, except oddly enough, in a couple of magazines in Canada. He has travelled and worked in many countries, from Zambia to Japan, and Germany to New Zealand, with several stop-offs en route affording him a perspective on worldly subjects that he invariably then writes about His style is mainly narrative, with a beginning, middle and end to his poetry, although he has experimented with virtually every format possible. Having taken semi-retirement, he has a renewed vigour to his work and is enjoying it thoroughly, writing poetry and children's picture books, as well as travel reviews from many visits He finally published his first anthology, Blue eyes through black mascara, written as a legacy piece for his grandchildren. Hopefully, they will understand his motivations and passions. He enjoys many writers' works, from the classics to the romantics to modern works. He is not a great lover of the Avant-Garde in any art form. The pretentious nature of some pieces is not enjoyable, although the publishers and critics relish the stuff. JD Russell is his pen name. He believes it adds gravitas (maybe, maybe not). Write Out Loud has been a great catalyst for creation with so many fine writers who inspire him to do better work and also to entertain those reading his efforts


Doubt Why do heroes die so quietly? When cowards scream and shout. Why do believers seem so assured? When I'm in so much doubt.
