Chris grew up in a variety of dwellings in rural Herefordshire. After studying in Bournemouth, he moved to London where he spent several years working for a major play publisher. He subsequently left both metropolis and publisher for a life aboard a narrowboat with his wife and two children.
He has had his comedy sketches and monologues performed all over the UK and having lived in Hertford, Hereford and Dorset (née historic Hampshire) he is pleased to confirm that hurricanes are indeed a rarity.
Chris Perera is the sole and exclusive owner of Whittifordshire, a fictional county in the West Midlands, where most of his writing is set.
