Reading fiction is a daily activity for Chris. She reads across genre in both young adult and adult, from speculative fiction to women's fiction, and most flavors of mystery-suspense-thriller. Recently she's enjoyed the Heist Society series by Ally Carter and The Chronos Files series by Rysa Walker. She's an enthusiastic First Reader for two of her favorite authors: Barbara Nickless and Todd Fahnestock.
Her all-time favorite writers include Jeffery Deaver, Barbara O'Neal, John Hart, Chris Bohjalian, Neil Gaiman, Faye Kellerman, Jim Butcher (she's pictured here with Bob the Skull from his Dresden Files series), Jonathan Maberry, Lucia St. Clair Robson, Philip Pullman, and Robert Crais, among many others.
When Chris isn't writing, she loves interacting with other writers and readers at conferences, cons, and other events.
