BSR Contributor Since July 27, 2014

Born in the turbulent '60s, Chris was introduced very young to reading by his paternal grandmother. From there, it was a small jump to writing articles for school publications and private newsletters and, later, his first novel. He lives in the southern tier of New York State surrounded by nature.

Chris has an educational background that includes all sorts of writing, from screen to creative to magazine. In grade school, he wrote articles, many quite satirical, for school publications. Later, he wrote a tongue-in-cheek advice column for a role-playing-game related publication. Throughout his life, he has written a grand amount of poetry, ever the romantic; only recently has he gathered it into an anthology that he self-published through Amazon in both e-book format and in paperback.

His interests are many and varied, ranging from horror novels and movies, to fantasy role-playing games to cooking, baking, and even jewelry creation. He will turn his hand to pretty much any creative endeavor, or so it seems, including, it seems, an attempt to write the great American novel.

He would like to collect enough recipes for a cookbook as well and perhaps, in the future, teach a class on the culinary arts.

Beauty, emotion, and science seem to collide often in his life and in his writing, three things where at least one of them doesn't belong, but if you keep reading, he will prove to you that they can and indeed must often work together, enhancing the living experience for all.
