In more than three decades as a professional writer/journalist, Christopher has covered myriad subjects and interviewed thousands of people from the famous to the unknown. He brings his years of experience to each one of his novels.
Every work is different. Through reading his novels, you can visit the American home front in the 1940s, a future San Francisco wiped out by a killer earthquake, a romantic love affair in post-war Paris in the 1920s, a future planet where the major industry is making babies -- or an exciting detective series set in 1930s Los Angeles.
In his career, his work has appeared in daily newspapers, monthly magazines, extensively on radio and the occasional dalliance with television. He has written advertising copy and radio commercials -- and continues to write.
Christopher has recently finished work on the last of a series of novels that take place in 1930s Los Angeles called “The James Murray Mysteries.” Books in the series are "Murder at Eastern Columbia," “Sabotage at RKO Studio,” “Abduction at Griffith Observatory,” “Blackmail at Wrigley Field,” and the newest “Haunting at Ocean House.”
Other works featuring his byline include "The Babi Makers" -- a science fiction tale about a world where the most important resource is babies; "Sarah & Gerald" -- a novel about Paris in the 1920s; "Forever - and other stories" -- a collection of short stories; "The Life Line" -- the novel of the big one that levels San Francisco; "News on the Home Front" -- a novel of two friends during World War Two; and "Mama Cat" -- a book for children. Also, several short plays, a few radio plays and a boatload of radio documentaries.

I always find it hard to write reviews for books compiled of many short stories. I don't want to give away the storylines, which I find hard not to do if I am summarizing them. So, here is a little bit different style of review for me. No summary of the stories, just my view on the entire collection and which one(s) I found I liked the best.
I really enjoyed these short stories. They were very well written and very heartfelt stories. I think my two favorite stories in this book were "The Little Books that Ran Away" and "My Father's Old Car". I found these two stories extra touching to me personally. I could "see" the stories as I read them, which is always a true sign to me of great writing. I think this author does a fantastic job with this book of short stories and reading them you could tell he writes from his heart and soul. I plan on reading his other works too.
Great author, great stories, great writing!!!
