About Me

My first book was published by Glory to Glory publications in August 2012!!! Such an exciting moment!! YAY!!!

So - as a member of ACW, I obviously love to write... I also love to organise. So that's what I do, in a nutshell.

Until my debut book, I have been writing a Christian Teenage Girl's Magazine called SHINE which is published and distributed free of charge to girls accorss the world. It's such an honour to be able to use my hands to encourage others.

I also work for a Christian organisation - CMJ - and have the pleasure of writing for the website - as the website manager, and organising the annual Conference. My two favourite activities combined into the perfect job role!!! :-)

I am blessed with a wonderful husband and a gorgeous stepson (part time, as he lives with his mum). We love to take advantage of being so close to Sherwood Forest and the Derbyshire Peaks!

About Me

Writing, other than for work-purposes within a civil service department, hadn't been on my agenda ... until recently.  But through a series of God-driven circumstances it's now a significant feature of my time/energies.  

Having to use the self-publishing route  for spiritual-growth material to emerge in book form has also been a steep learning-curve.   However the result, in physical terms so far, has been three books:   Dialogue with a Donkey (looking at the incident involving Balaam),  Fleeces Fears and Flames (exploring the life of Gideon), and  Focusing beyond the Horizon (learning from Samuel about God's perspective).   All are listed on Amazon.

In all of this experience being sensitive to God has, and continues, to be a vital element.  Hope that this presents a 'flavour' of where things are 'at' with me at the moment ... a work in progress!

About Me

I grew up in a sleepy little beach town on the coast of Los Angeles, as a third-generation Californian. A deep fascination with the sea led to a degree in Aquatic Biology at UC Santa Barbara, where I also met my wife. Together we have travelled widely to many, rarely visited, corners of the world in our work with an international Christian mission. The last twenty years have been increasingly rooted in the UK, and so we added a British passport and citizenship (they just let anyone in nowadays…) to the litany of our life.

It is a sabbatical year, and among other things, I am exploring writing about the colonization of the open seas. Like the opening American West, this new frontier allows for a wide cast of characters there for many reasons – from the noble and opportunistic to the foolish and downright dastardly.

A similar love of science allows me to follow trajectories of today’s technology into the near future. Like Isaac Asimov, I believe stories like this are not so much science fiction, but social fiction.

Finally, I am also fascinated by faith in the world today – not religion, but faith. Though not often discussed in polite society, faith nonetheless dominates the headlines of our news and its influence is pervasive in world events. In my writing I want to explore missional communities, spiritual formation, why Muslims might decide to follow Jesus and what happens next. 

Though I have many ideas, I am a neophyte in the craft of writing fiction, and am eager to engage with others further along the path. Looking forward to getting to know you.

Hello all,

I have a trilogy of Christian fiction out there, self-published with Authors Online, 'Leviathan with a Fish-hook (2009), 'The Monster Behemoth' (2010), and 'The Land of Nimrod' (2011.) It looks as if I was hard at work for three years but as you may have guessed it took a lot longer than that! I call it 'realistic contemporary British Christian fiction for adults', and I'm trying to write about people living the Christian life in our times -  warts, doubts, fears and all. There are reviews and excerpts on Amazon and on my website www.slrussell.co.uk


A fourth novel, a stand-alone this time, in a similar genre was published in November 2014. It's called 'A Shed in a Cucumber Field' and can be found in all the usual places, both as a paperback and an e book. Following the sad demise of Authors Online all my books are now under the umbrella of New Generation Publishing. I have recently finished the first draft of no. 5, so some of next year will be spent editing.

I worship at St Margaret's High Halstow in North Kent where I am the organist.

About Me

Hello, I joined ACW in 2014.  I have been writing on and off all my life. Minutes of meetings, press reports for the WI, announcements for the parish magazine. I did a correspondence course on writing for children around twenty years ago and won a prize at county level in a WI competition with a children's story. However I became discouraged by repeated rejections.

My interests include science and languages. I am married with two grown-up children (both married) and three grandchildren. I returned to writing in 2012 by starting a blog. Now I have three blogs and enough material for more than one book. 

I am also working on a book.

I attend a 'local' group of Christian writers and hope to meet some more ACW members later this year.

About Me

What started with course work, quickly moved to a blog, a passion, a desire and a book, Now here I am with all that passion for God and for writing, bringing the two together and using his gifts to me and as a gift to others.

Well that's the idea anywhere, I feel excited, inadequate, enthused and doubtful as I am really just starting on this new journey, but with support, good friends and a lot of prayer, I believe God can take me anywhere if I let him
