    DIY Writer #39 Christopher Russell

    Christopher is one of those guys that is just fun to listen to. We talked about his debut novel Divinity’s Twilight: Rebirth and how he came up with this incredible world and magic system. I really can’t wait to see where he is with his author career in 5 years.https://www.christopherrussellauthor.com/https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B088PB6M5Dhttps://www.facebook.com/DivinitysTwilightBooks/?view_public_for=101421541236852https://www.instagram.com/christopher_russell_author/https://twitter.com/Chris_DT_authorhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJ0d6wMwDP7LO1s4YnMz__gAbout Christopher RussellI'm Christopher Russell, a weaver of words and the wondrous worlds that spring from them. I might also be a fan of alliteration.My debut work, the fantasy epic Divinity's Twilight: Rebirth, releases on E-book June 2, 2020, and in physical mediums September 22, 2020. This opening entry in the gripping Divinity's Twilight series follows a band of military cadets torn from their peaceful lives when a tragic failure by their ancestors, a mistake seven centuries old, dredges itself from an all too shallow grave.Sample chapters from the novel and assorted short stories are available at christopherrussellauthor.com/books-1--and check out the rest of my site for setting details, character previews, new projects, and more.About The AuthorChristopher Russell (native of Williamsburg, VA) is a 28-year-old mechanical and aerospace engineer (graduate of the University of Virginia) who has loved reading since the day he picked up a book and writing since he could scrawl his first letters. After voraciously consuming titles from every genre--ranging from Star Wars to Lord of the Rings--he decided to combine the expertise from his professional education, passions, and Christian faith into a fantasy epic bridging the gap between magic and science. He currently resides in Charlottesville, Virginia, with his loyal dog, Vallen, named after the protagonist of his first work.
