Get to know Chris...
Birthday? November 17th
When did you start writing? 

In the early 90s, as a teenager. In those years, I submitted a piece of thinly veiled Star Trek TNG fanfiction to one of the biggest SF magazines around--except there were four teenagers all as brilliant and precocious as Wesley Crusher.
When and what and where did you first get published? 

In February 2016, my Edwardian tunnel of love/goddess story "Love is a Masterpiece" was published by Gallery of Curiosities podcast, anchoring a Valentine's day special episode. (I love the narrator they picked and the music they got for the story.)
What themes do you like to write about? 

True love, family, magic, outsiders, the dangers of entitlement, difficult choices, sacrifice, making a connection with somebody very different, getting lost and finding yourself.
What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work? 

I was blown away when I first read "Inappropriate Behaviour", by Pat Murphy, especially by the moment where the autistic main character pushes out of both her own comfort zone and her training to save the life of her unlikely friend. I love all of Bryan Lee O'Malley's graphic novels, mostly because of what they have to say about taking care of other people, responsibility and temptation, and how weird growing up can be. And Diane Duane's Young Wizard novels, full of wild magic and technology, friendly and frightening aliens, curious and creative protagonists.
