Chris Mason

Biography

Chris Mason is a software engineer who would rather have been a writer, but he is addicted to coding and couldn't figure out how to support himself writing obscure novels. He worked as a programmer and programming manager for 18 years -- including 10 years at Microsoft, where he was involved with Word and Office for Macintosh. He has three software patents stashed somewhere in his closet.

After leaving Microsoft for good he founded GrowlyBird Software, which develops free Macintosh applications.

During his years in the wilderness he wrote five novels (among other things), which are available here.

He lives in Florida so he can go to DisneyWorld at a moment's notice. He and his wife are the caretakers of two dogs, two cats, and two parrots. He's seriously considering building an ark.

Because he's a workaholic curmudgeon with hermit tendencies, he doesn't engage in social media. But you can contact him at chrisfidget@centurylink.net.
