About Riley Russell

Hey, there! Thanks for checking out my books and art.

I’ve always loved to write, draw, and dream up adventures. I grew up traveling the world as an army kid, and eventually settled in my favorite place on earth, the Pacific Northwest. As a teenager, I discovered I also loved judo, and today I coach and help run a judo team. I write stories and create designs with a heart for the good fight—the daily battle for faith, hope, and love. Whether you’re into my uplifting coloring books or Venture’s world of brawls and big dreams, betrayal and camaraderie (and of course, his forbidden love for Jade), welcome!
