Chris grew up in a quaint old town nestled in a valley deep in the Oak Ridges Moraine, in a house that was probably haunted. They have been writing fantastical stories since they were able to hold a pencil, and dabbled with high fantasy, cyberpunk, and other genres – completing their first 175k word fantasy novel at 15, which has never seen the light of day. Now, they live in Toronto, and spend their non-day job time engaged in all manner of geekery.
They hold Neil Gaiman and Brandon Sanderson in the highest of esteem and thinks Mistborn might be one of their favourite books ever, but other books they’ve been known to love include Neverwhere and The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman, Good Omens by Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke, and The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. He’s also a fan of Jim Butcher, R. Scott Bakker, Robert Jordan, Julia Grey, Terry Brooks, and many others.
They love cats, cooking, and have a deep, abiding fondness in their alien psyche for all things Fey, Lovecraftian horrors, and other such inhuman monstrosities of the Blue-and-Orange Morality kind. Like cats.
