Steven D. Russell was an ENnie award winning designer, developer, and publisher. He was the founder and CEO of Rite Publishing, a micropress tabletop game publishing company that has produced over a 350 products for Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, Lords of Gossamer & Shadow, and others. He spent his free time listening to audio books and playing way to many games, some of which I had the pleasure to play in.
Steven was killed in an auto accident on July 5, 2016, a few months before the birth of his child. He was a dear friend and a major supporter of my writing. I think of him whenever I write, and my books will all be dedicated to Steve for the unwavering friendship, support, and inspiration he gave to me.
