About Chris


I started creating stories not long after I mastered joined-up writing, somewhat to the bemusement of my parents and my English teachers - even my school essays weren't safe from my overactive imagination. But I received plenty of encouragement. Dad gave me an already old Everest typewriter when I was ten, and it was probably the best gift I'd ever received until the inventions of the home computer and the World-Wide Web.

My reading and writing interests range from historical, mystery, and paranormal, to science-fiction and fantasy, mostly in the male/male genre. I refuse to be pigeon-holed and intend to uphold the long and honorable tradition of the Eccentric Brit to the best of my ability.

In my spare time [hah!] I read, or listen to audio books while quilting or knitting. In the past I've worked for my local Constabulary as a behind-the-scenes civilian for over twenty years, I've been a part-time and unpaid amateur archaeologist and a 15th century re-enactor.

I live in a small but ancient city in the West of England in the heart of what once was the kingdom of Wessex and I share my home with an extended family and assorted livestock. Life tends toward the chaotic, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

It's always been an equal amount of fun and hard work, and I hope my readers get as much enjoyment from reading the stories as I do from researching and writing them.

Mainstream Writing

As well as novels featuring same-sex relationships in amongst the mystery and danger, I also write more mainstream stories, solo and in tandem with Terri Beckett, my longtime friend and writing sister.

These are released under the name of Chris Power and the website is here.
