It is finally out. The long awaited masterpiece by Russell C. Brennan' Originally done as a film script the novel version has been getting preview readers hot under the collar for quite a while now. It's called Kidnapping Time.It's an exciting erotic Sci-Fi conspiracy thriller
Descendants of H.G. Wells & Leonardo Da Vinci build a Time Machine based on their famous ancestors' works. Rather than go through history eliminating evil dictators they decide they'd rather make love to the sexiest women in history instead.
However, they get more than they bargained for as they get caught up in some of the most famous conspiracies of the last 3,000 years from Cleopatra to Elizabeth 1st and beyond, with Marilyn Monroe, Bridget Bardot, Jane Fonda, Princess Diana, The Kennedys and many more household names front and centre of some very interesting storylines. It also features a very poignant love story between Marilyn & Frank Sinatra as a core story.
The novel features lots of thrills and twists plus the author's trade mark tasteful ultra-erotic element. Although not a comedy story it has more funny moments in just one chapter than most comedy feature films, such as when Marilyn is kidnapped through time to this Century and even struggles to get a job as an M.M look-alike! The book is full of water-cooler moments that will leave you on a high with a smile on your face.
If you are already a fan of any of the characters mentioned you will love this book but always remember this is Science Fiction and although some things may seem familiar they are not always as they seem. History will never be the same again!

In brief, Russell started writing at an early age and sold his first film script and TV options at 17, whilst also establishing a career as D.J at night, eventually becoming one of the top D.j's in Europe. He then married a pop star 'Eleanor Rigby' and switched to producing records and writing songs which proved successful with 250 releases worldwide as producer and 50 as a songwriter. Along the way he wrote a successful fanzine 'Dedicated Follower' (That is now housed in the prestigious Victoria and Albert museum), as well as writing the book 'Music Business Bastards (How to do well in the music Industry without getting ripped off), which did really well and has been updated and released twice more. He also stumbled into photography and ended up taking some iconic images, with some being featured on album covers and posters etc, in 2016 he was signed up by Saatchi Art and also had a limited edition book release of his photos and lyrics called 'Voyeurs Welcome' which is just about to sell out.
In the 90's Russell ran a successful indie record label, 'Future Legend Records', helping to set new trends and create new music genres along the way. In recent years, apart from photography and still having a hand in music he returned to writing books and scripts and has a few films in the pipeline that he will direct as well. (He has in fact directed some popular pop videos before) We suppose we should also mention he has been in 2 or 3 bands as a musician, playing mainly Punk Cello and occasionally doing lead vocals.
His cuurent band is Psykick Holiday who have a CD album out 'Forever Pop Noir' They recently had a top 20 indie hit in the U.S. with 'One Way Ticket to the Moon' and have a brand new double 'A' single just out 'San Francisco/Let's Go to San Francisco' to celebrate the 50th annivesary of Peace & Love. It's available at Itunes and all good download sites. The video for both tracks have just premiered at youtube.
