Michael Russell Book and Novel

Michael Russell - Author

Michael Russell read English at Oxford before spending the next three years working in farming in North Devon, trying to get someone to pay him to write. He worked for Yorkshire Television as a script editor, on Emmerdale Farm, working his way up to Series Producer. He also spent two years in the Drama Department, first as Script Consultant then Producer, before leaving ITV to write full-time. He is a regular contributor to Midsommer Murders and recently scripted the last ever Touch of Frost which topped the ratings. He left to become a full-time television writer, before finally writing what he had started out intending to write, a novel. He now lives in Ireland with his wife, his children and step-children, and a large Rhodesian Ridgeback dog.
