Russell Blake Biography
Russell Blake was born in 1960 in the USA. The month and date are not known, though it is probably some time between February and May.
Russell likes to keep as much of his past and personal life as private as is possible, so almost nothing is known of his early life, family, or current life. One thing which is known is his real name: Russell was born Craig Phillip Osso. He adopted the name Russell Blake as a pseudonym when he took up writing (he uses another similar name to write outside his usual thriller genre – he writes young adult/romance novels under the name R.

Far from The Little Prince, Russell’s story was pure horror, involving blood and guts, satanic elements, and maybe even demonic pigeons of all things. (I’m sure his teacher was delighted and not concerned in the least!)
He spent his youth living on the West Coast of the USA. For a short time, he attended college but became very disillusioned very quickly. He felt the educational program was teaching him how to memorize things he’d never use in real life, but not teaching him the most basic things needed to succeed in life: how to think and how to reason. With that, he took drastic action...
