B. R. Russell is a New York Times Best… wait, she isn’t one yet? Damn it. B. R. Russell is the little engine that could… hopefully.

Originally from Ireland, she moved to the USA and worked in the fields of neuroscience and immunology for a decade. Inspired by the works of Steven Erickson, David Mitchel, Stephen King, and William Gibson, she hopes to one day be on the same stage as them and not be awkward about it. She writes science-fiction, fantasy, romance, thrillers, horror, and combines those genres sometimes, all in the hopes of making you go, “damn that was cool.”

When she’s not writing, you’ll find her biking unreasonably steep hills, reading, or playing video games.
