Executive Vice President and Director of Creative Services
When Russ Dymond decided to write a novel, he chose a topic he knows well -- advertising-- and a setting with which he is very familiar -- Charlotte.
A 42-year veteran of the advertising business, Dymond worked at some of the Southeast's top agencies as a copywriter, creative director and agency owner. He retired from Sterrett-Dymond Advertising in 2008. All that experience (mixed with plenty of imagination) shows up in the plot and characters of Luke's Way. "Luke is presented with a difficult choice," Dymond says. Russ Dymond grew up in Asheville, N.C., and Savannah, Ga.. He is a graduate of Western Carolina University with a degree in English and professional writing. He is the winner of multiple awards from major advertising creative competitions and was named "Best TV Copywriter in the Southeast" by Adweek Magazine. Luke's Way is his first novel.
