JD has been writing for some years without publishing any 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 in a storytelling manner with 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 childrens picture books as well as travel reviews from many visits He intends to publish, especially his poetic version of his autobiography entitled "The Tome of the Unknown Poet", written for his grandchildren to hopefully 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 avant-garde in any art form, due to the pretentious nature of the pieces, although the publishers and critics relish the stuff. JD Russell is his pen name. He believes it adds gravatas (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 but to also 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?
