YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE RICH AND FAMOUS TO HAVE ADVENTURES!

“My name is Pierre Jacque Russey. My friends call me Pete. I would like to invite you into my world. If you take up my offer and enter, be forewarned. You just might find yourself identifying with it.”

The Common Man Adventure Series is a collection of adventures that everyone can relate to. Enjoy the laughs and experience life through another’s eyes. . . .

BOOK REVIEWS

"The Mighty Spartan was a delightful memoir to read - I enjoyed especially the chapter on the filming on "In The Heat of the Night". I was a young nurse working 3 - 11 at Sparta Hospital. A group of co-workers would come "down town" after work to watch Sidney Portier and Rod Steiger on the streets of Sparta! Good job. Thank you sharing the memories."
