About The Author
If you’re reading this letter then you’ve probably read my story, Prelude To An Empire. If you haven’t, then you should read it before you read this book, but I’ll try my best not to spoil it for you.
I once owned a journal that I called my “Book of Secrets”… but it was taken from me. I have no idea where it is or if I’ll ever see it again. I’m writing this letter to you in hopes that if you come across it in your journeys that you will return it to me. That book is very important to me because it contains details about the innermost workings of my mind and imagination. During some of the most difficult times of my life, I often picked up a pen and wrote… in that very book.
My “Book of Secrets” is not just special to me because of the secrets it contains but also because it connects me to my mother… Charlene Wright. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to hear her say she loves me, hug her and have her hug me back, or even laugh with her again. She had her own journal that she gave to me during our very last conversation and it’s missing as well. I will never know what other secrets were hidden in those pages – but it is probably not far from wherever my Book of Secrets lies hidden from me.
In the following pages, I’ve tried to recreate as much of my “Book of Secrets” as I can to aid in your search. If you happen upon anything that resembles the following context, you know where to find us.

Russell’s Book of Secrets
(Partially recreated by Russell N. Wright)

My light that is always by my side,
My light from which true feelings cannot hide,
My light forever inspires me,
My endless light that helps me see,
My light that ignites the passion inside of me,
My light that makes sure I am being all that I can be.

This love is special,
This love is different from any other,
This love knows no boundaries,
This love is not easily gained,
This love is easily maintained,
This love is fruitful,
This love is joyful,
This love brings smiles and laughter,
This love knows no vanity,
This love sees no colors,
This love is blind,
This love is the love of a friend.

These are the moments that I live for,
The memories that I hold most dear,
Being with friends that love me,
Laughing, joking, just being young!
From crack-heads to chicken-heads,
From hoes to bros, we’ve seen it all!
Around the world and back again,
Nothing beats the price of a friend.
I’d give up everything to go back and do it again,
All the times that we’ve shared.
