Chris grew up in Sheffield surrounded by a wonderful mix of heavy industry and beautiful scenery. After finishing his ‘A’ levels in 1976 he went “walkabout” where he mixed 3 years of foreign travel with over 14 “horrible” temporary jobs deliberately chosen to give him a rounded experience in life. He returned back to the UK and went to study in London. From there he lived in Islington and Maidenhead for 8 years and Birmingham for 9. Then he came to see his sister in Chester for a new year’s eve party 18 years ago and stayed there ever since. He met his wife Rachel soon after and now they have two young sons, Tom and James.

He first began writing at an early age where a comprehensive school backdrop provided an interesting blend of playing football, avoiding fights and writing poetry. Much later in life he studied creative writing at Liverpool University and went on to run a writing group after that. When one of its members complained that he couldn’t get his stage play produced, Chris formed Too Write Productions over a pint of lager and his vertical learning curve in the tortuous world of theatre production began. Twelve years later Chris has new work planned up to 2014 having consecutively received good reviews in what can be a terribly brutal and unforgiving world. Chris also writes radio plays, screenplays and novels and he directs.

Chris has been closely involved in drama initiatives at Liverpool Community College, Chester University and West Cheshire College over many years.  He's also been involved in Young Enterprise since 1994 and has taught business in numerous schools across Cheshire since that time. He is a Prince’s Trust mentor and has been a judge and promoter of the Shell STEP and Livewire projects for the last 13 years.  He is a board member of youth based theatre organisation Action Transport Theatre, based in Cheshire.

Outside writing Chris also enjoys most sports including karate and he’s a qualified pilot.

Scariest moment in life: Getting lost in Manchester controlled airspace for over an hour in bad weather when the nav went tech in the plane he was flying.

Happiest moment in life: (apart from getting married seeing his sons born): landing the same plane safely again.
