About Christopher Southers

Christopher Southers is a writer, photographer, father and defiantly romantic dreamer somehow living the good life in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. He couldn't accomplish this without his best friend, and lazy black lab, Anika, and his two daughters. There’s also Friday, another dog that lives with him. He prefers not to discuss Friday.
His most important belief is that the world around us really is a beautiful place. It’s easy to see. Just share a little love. Smile at a stranger. Pay for someone’s lunch. What you give to the world will be given back to you. Karma isn’t a dirty word. You can make life what you want it to be.
Christopher loves to hear from his fans. You can contact him by email at thechristophersouthers@gmail.com, follow him on Twitter at @authorcsouthers, drop by his website http://wickeddreamsemporium.com/ or visit his Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/authorchristophersouthers. It’s a good place. The bar’s always open and the music is always eclectic.
Christopher Southers’ work is available e-book retailers everywhere.

The Wishing Star was an interesting story. The plot was well paced. The characters were easily relatable. Their thoughts and actions were believable. Good job!

This was a truly touching story. It is unfortunate that these two never had the chance to be together, whose to blame is debatable but at least they stayed close for decades.

Review by: Shayne McClendon on Sep. 08, 2013 :
Deep and painfully beautiful.

Because I write erotica, most people assume that is all I read. Nothing could be further from the truth. In my lifetime, I've read tens of thousands of stories in all genres. I feel I have an excellent grasp of the written word. I'm a hard sell, I admit that.

This story touched me deeply. It is a romantic story yet not one at all. It is both happy and sad. I cried at several points because Christopher is a writer who communicated to me that he "got it" - the human condition. The beautiful disaster that each of us can be at points in our lives. The broken pieces that have to be glued back together again and again...but the cracks always show.

I'm constantly asked to mentor new authors but I have very little time and I won't cheat them of what they need. When he sent me a small excerpt of an existing story, I was floored by his talent and the fact that he needed very little direction - his first draft was already so good.

I'm proud of what he did here...and I think you're going to love Salina and Brandon's story. Highly recommended!
