Audra Russell is a writer and blogger.  She is a native Jersey girl who has been living in a Maryland world for the past 21 years.  She has held an array of jobs in her short life, but her two undergraduate degrees in journalism show where her true passion lies.

She is currently working on getting her first novel published, but keeps busy in the meantime posting weekly short stories on her blog, Just Write.

When she isn’t writing, reading, or honing her skills in online creative writing courses, she is spending time with her family and growing food in her backyard farm while trying to keep her chickens from stealing her tomatoes.

Oh…and she loves the smell of books, freshly sharpened number two pencils, and scotch tape. But who doesn’t, right?
