Hello

I am an unpublished writer hoping for a break.

I can be contacted via email at: russvic@hotmail.com

A little about me: If you were to peek at my Favorites tab, what would you see (Just a minute, let me look): There are sites on writing, wolves, bigfoot, the paranormal, bush craft and survival, the apocalypse, prepping, the Civil War, frontier history, Deadwood, SD, photography, trees, art, comedy, turkey and deer hunting, and did I mention writing.


I attended Rochester Community College, Rochester, MN, and later graduated from St. Cloud State University, St. Cloud, MN. Major: Speech Communication; Minor: English, Creative Writing.


 I would like to thank a few people who have helped me along the way:


*RCC Journalism Advisor Ken Knapp
*SCSU English Professor Steve Klepetar
*McLeod Publishing News Editor Rich Glennie
*Editor Jay Lewis Allchin​
