The Latest Thriller

The Demeter Code

Crack the code and you’ll save millions of lives. But knowing it exists will get you killed.

When two American embassies in northern Africa are bombed, CIA operatives, Ridley Fox and Nita Parris, are assigned to track down the perpetrators. However, when their top asset is killed in a failed op, the agents suspect that there may be a new threat. Their search for the truth puts them on a collision course with a powerful multinational—which will go to extreme lengths to bury its criminal activities. However, the agents soon learn that someone with a personal vendetta against that company not only knows their secrets, but will expose them in a way that could result in the largest single-day attack against America.

Personal life

Russell is the author of four books with a an upcoming fifth which will be released later in 2021. An avid Renaissance Man, he learned to play the violin, the piano, the viola, the bassoon, and the electric base guitar while in high school. Today, he prefers to stick with the violin where he performs at concerts and on special occasions.

Brooks developed his talents as a runner in high school to become a national-level sprinter. This landed him a track and field scholarship to Indiana University in Bloomington, where he excelled in the 100m, 200m, and the 4x100m relay–winning several races and becoming an All Big Ten.

Russell’s talents even got him on the world athletics stage where he represented Canada at the World University Games in Palma de Mallorca, Spain in the same three events. He also represented Team Quebec at the 1997 Jeux de la Francophonie in Antanarivo, Madagascar and again in Ottawa in 2001. 

Education

Russell attended Indiana University in Bloomington, IN on a track and field scholarship. He graduated with a B.Sc. in Biology and a minor in Psychology.

Even though he was considered to be a ‘science nerd’, Russell also excelled in African-American studies. His education in that subject matter made him passionate about exposing systemic racism and injustice towards racialized communities in Quebec and in Canada. Aside from writing essays in his blog about the subject matter, in the summer of 2020 he took part in two demonstrations called “Driving While Black, Proud and Free”—the first of its kind in Canada—where Black motorist formed a caravan and staged a peaceful protest. The event gained nationwide attention as it raised awareness to the ongoing problems of racial profiling by police in the Montreal area towards Black motorists. 

During his studies, Russell also excelled in a drama class called oral interpretation. This not only only translated into the snappy dialogue found in his books, but also made him popular at poetry readings.
