Russell Fee grew up in Washington, D.C. and London. After graduating from the College of William and Mary, he served in the army as a military intelligence officer and then became a trial lawyer, litigating civil rights and civil liberties cases, before becoming a teacher. In their inimitable ways, these careers inspired his novels and book of poetry. He and his wife have traveled the world and are dual citizens of the United States and Ireland.  They now live in the Midwest, which they both love.

He is currently working on the third book in the Sheriff Matt Callahan Mystery Series, titled A Dangerous Season.
