About the Author:

In more than three decades as a professional writer/journalist, Christopher has covered myriad subjects and interviewed thousands of people from the famous to the unknown. He brings his years of experience to each one of his novels. Every work is different. Through reading his novels, you can visit the American home front in the 1940s, a future San Francisco wiped out by a killer earthquake, a romantic love affair in post-war Paris in the 1920s -- or, coming in 2013, travel to another world in another time when everything is controlled by the government and everyone is happy. In his career, his work has appeared in daily newspapers, monthly magazines, extensively on radio and the occasional dalliance with television. He has written advertising copy and radio commercials -- and continues to write, write, write. Works featuring his byline include "Sarah & Gerald" -- a novel about Paris in the 1920s, "Forever - and other stories" -- a collection of short stories, "The Life Line" -- the novel of the big one that levels San Francisco, "News on the Home Front" -- a novel of two friends during World War Two, and "Mama Cat" -- a book for children. Also, several short plays, a few radio plays and a boat load of radio documentaries.
