Author? Maybe… In truth, Chris is just a regular guy from a small town. He appreciates art in all of its forms, draws his inspiration from classic literature and contemporary satire, and writes stories that explore the inner workings of the human mind. Before writing his first fiction novel, Boy Unraveled, he worked as a freelance writer and spent years working in the behavioral health field.
Besides his own life experiences, some of his greatest literary inspiration comes from talented authors such as Kurt Vonnegut, J.D. Salinger, and Roger Smith. His father’s love for Stephen King and Dean Koontz sparked his interest in reading, which eventually developed into a need to write fiction. Coupled with a strong desire to bring change to a stigmatized mental health population, Chris became a Certified Grant Writer® and has developed a proven track record of helping non-profit organizations secure grant money for altruistic causes. When he is not working on his next book, he works as a planning and consulting professional; helping business and non-profit organizations achieve their goals of development, growth, and sustainability.

Boy Unraveled is a mirror that shines light on the terrible reality of child abuse and on everything that could go wrong in the foster care system. A harrowing, gripping, and extremely suspenseful psychological thriller, this book forces you to lose yourself in the twisted mind of the main character, Charlie.
