USA Today and Wall Street Journal Best-selling Author
The World According to Garp was perhaps the first sign to a troubled young man that his life might be okay. It was incredibly reassuring to see that a young man from such a deeply interesting background could find his niche in life. G. Russell Gaynor was not nearly as challenged as T. S. Garp, but until the revelation of the character, relatively speaking, Russell was the weirdest kid on his block. His father, a career United States Navy man, taught him how to stand up to face the most challenging aspects of life, including the unknown. His mother, a nurse and a technician for the US Geological Survey, taught him how to love and understand. In the beginning, it was mostly stories about superheroes and the stuff of comic books. Then came the works of Alexandre Dumas and the ideal of romantic heroes. Now there was a need to make women swoon and men weep, and poetry was discovered and written. Russell was twelve when he went to his first play, which revealed a love for the stage, and fourteen when role-playing games filled his head with the adventures of steel and sorcery. This all concluded with the love of the story and its effect on the audience. http://grussellgaynor.com/
