For over two decades, Russ Elliott has been an award-winning Art Director at a Palm Harbor advertising agency. Collecting over a dozen "ADDY Awards" for creative excellence, (advertising's equivalent to the Grammy's), Russ recently added fiction writing to his artistic skill set (he is also an accomplished painter and sculptor).As one of the original "dinosaur kids," it is not surprising that Russ chose to write about the greatest prehistoric predator that ever lived for his first set of novels.Other past and present hobbies include motocross and flat track racing, performance cars and competitive bodybuilding. In addition, Russ has two patents to his name. He also created the art for his book covers and most of the images on his website: www.vengeancefromthedeep.com. He now resides in Tampa, Florida, with his wife Danielle and his Doberman.
