Born and raised in The United States, Chris has been a long time reader of science fiction and horror. Citing Clive Barker, Franz Kafka, H.P. Lovecraft, and later Neil Gaiman, as primary influences, he started writing short stories in high school in the late nineteen-eighties with a baleful eye towards shocking unprepared teachers and some of the more normal students. He was fairly successful in that endeavor.
Following a twenty year hiatus from writing for any audience beyond himself, Chris decided to delve into the world of publication once and for all, and began work on his first novel, as well as some new and revamped short stories. Some of these are a particularly macabre sort of horror, while others are straight out science fiction, and some are just plain weird.
