Jeffrey Allen Russel is a Toronto born writer and photographer.
The author's passion for storytelling developed during his many travels around the globe. On one such journey, investigating his ancestral roots in Scotland, he discovered familial ties to a bloody period in its history that must never be forgotten. The Highland Clearances covers the period of time from 1780 until well into the late 1800's. Grace, the award winning, feature-length screenplay is the result of those efforts.
After starting out as a singer-songwriter in the 1970's, Jeffrey spent twenty-five years working in Toronto as a real estate broker before embarking on a career in the arts. As a writer he has found a passion he never experienced in the world of business. He has discovered a new voice to compliment the beautiful imagery already found in his photography.
Jeffrey has always traveled. He cut his teeth on international soil during a year-long trek around the Pacific Ocean. Now, as an award-winning author, it seems his travels around the world may have only just begun.
