In The Beginning…

DeathLines3 (© 2014)Greetings, I’m Chris. I’ve written fantasy for as long as I can remember, but I always kept it under wraps because I didn’t know what I was doing and never took it seriously. I entertained myself and that was enough.

One day while writing, my then-girlfriend (now wife) asked “What are you doing?”  “Uh, writing…stuff…” With her encouragement I started to take it seriously.

I’ve written 2.5 novels and a few short stories, all part of my Earthpillar world. Several first readers have edited them but nothing is published yet.

For me, quality is more important than rushing to publish. I’m currently querying agents to represent the novels to publishers, and I’m submitting the shorts to online magazines.

I started this website and blog to talk about my work and ideas. It’s a work in progress so please excuse the “under construction” parts. My focus is on writing, so posts will be irregular, at least for now.

Feel free to post your thoughts throughout the site, or contact me with comments, questions, or critiques.

Brief bio: early thirties, male, currently living in the Netherlands. I was raised by a literature professor and a soldier, and I earned degrees in political science and history. I love to travel, hike, read, write, grow berries, and I’m planning a cider orchard.

Thanks for visiting! Now, back to writing…
