Sue Russell

Sue Russell is an award-winning journalist and the co-author of 2022's "The Illustrated Courtroom: 50+ Years of Court Art" with artist Elizabeth Williams. She is also the author of "Lethal Intent," a fact crime biography of executed serial killer Aileen Wuornos. "The Illustrated Courtroom", whose first edition in 2014 won a dozen awards and honors, showcases the beautiful artwork of five award-winning court artists -- artists who go where cameras can't. It includes more than 150 pieces from many historic trials. 2022's updated edition adds headline-making defendants like Jeffrey Epstein, Harvey Weinstein, Michael Cohen, drug lord "El Chapo" and R. Kelly. Its many notable--and notorious--characters also include Jack Ruby (who killed President John F. Kennedy's assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald), the Black Panthers, David "Son of Sam" Berkowitz, Charles Manson, Patty Hearst, O.J. Simpson, Michael Jackson, 1993 World Trade Center bomber Mohammed Salameh and Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh. The new second edition is available in eBook, paperback and hardback formats. Sue's true crime book "Lethal Intent" (fully updated in 2013) is a Pinnacle Books "True Crime Classic." It covers Wuornos's eleven years on Death Row and her eventual execution and is currently available in Audible and eBook. "Lethal Intent" was first published in the U.S. in 2002 after being issued in the UK and Australia as "Damsel of Death". Sue, who was present throughout Aileen Wuornos' trial, witnessed Aileen being sentenced to death. Digging deep into the life of this rare female serial killer consumed Sue for two years. The result: a classic book as relevant now as then. "The Illustrated Courtroom: 50+ Years of Court Art" is also dear to Sue's heart and represents a long collaboration with artist Elizabeth Williams.
