Paul Russell

Biography

Paul Russell has always been passionate about stories, even before he could read. Determined never to grow up and lose his imagination, he is a teacher, playwright, father, artist and author but maybe not always in that order. He is passionate about children's literacy and in building an appetite within children for the written word. Paul is also a dyslexic. He was inspired to write My Storee because, as a child with dyslexia, he wasn't supposed to want to read or write, but he did - all because he had one teacher who believed in him and a family who supported his creativity. This is his second picture book for EK, following on from the much-loved Grandma Forgets with Nicky Johnston as illustrator.
