About the Author

Chris grew up in Sheffield in the UK surrounded by a wonderful mix of heavy industry and beautiful scenery. After finishing his 'A' levels in 1976 he went "walkabout" where he mixed 3 years of foreign travel with over 14 "horrible" temporary jobs deliberately chosen to give him a rounded experience in life. He returned back to the UK and went to study in London. From there he lived in Islington and Maidenhead for 8 years and Birmingham for 9. Then he went to see his sister in Chester for a New Year's Eve party over 2 decades ago and has stayed there ever since. He has two teenage sons, Tom and James.

Chris first began writing at an early age where a comprehensive school backdrop provided an interesting blend of playing football, avoiding fights and writing poetry. In 1998 he studied creative writing at Liverpool University and went on to run a writing group after that. When one of its members complained that he couldn't get his stage play produced, Chris formed his production company, Too Write Productions over a pint of lager and his vertical learning curve in the tortuous world of theatre production began. Ten plays and six books later, he continues to write original, story-based works with imagination at their heart.
