Russell Heath discusses his latest thriller - Rinn’s Crossing - 317

October 12, 2020







Russell Heath discusses his latest thriller - Rinn's Crossing. This is episode 317 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

In his teens, Russell Heath hitchhiked to Alaska and lived in a cabin on the banks of the Tanana River; in his twenties, he lived in Italy and then traveled overland across the Sahara, through the jungles and over the savannas of Africa and into southern Asia.

In his thirties, he sailed alone around the world in a 25 foot wooden boat; in his forties, he wrote novels; and in his fifties he bicycled the spine of the Rockies from Alaska to Mexico.

He’s worked on the Alaska Pipeline, as an environmental lobbyist in the Alaska Legislature, and run a storied environmental organization fighting to protect Alaska’s coastal rainforests.

In 2010, wanting more frenzy in his life, he moved to New York City where he dug deep into leadership development and coaching. He now lives in a cabin on the coast of Maine coaching business and non-profit leaders intent on making big things happen in the world.

He is the author of the books - Broken Angels and Rinn’s Crossing

Today we are focused on Rinn’s Crossing


About Rinn’s Crossing:

On a remote Alaskan island, Rinn Vaness commits a minor felony. His former lover is arrested for the crime—and a murder someone tried to pin on him.

Out on bail, Kit Olinsky fights a scorched-earth battle in the state legislature to save the Alaska she loves. She can only win if she betrays her friend Dan Wakefield, a Native fighting desperately for what was promised to his people a generation ago. In the back rooms of the legislature, Senator Billy Macon manipulates Alaska’s grimy politics with vindictive mastery in the drive to the governor’s mansion.

Like a lone wolf, Rinn slips out of the forest to protect Kit, never suspecting that he has more at stake than a lonely prison cell.
