Christopher Millin


Christopher Millin published an arts and literature magazine for children called Crow Toes Quarterly from 2006 to 2011.

Many years before CTQ, Christopher fell into a deep, dark hole and met a man named Mr. Flex. Mr. Flex told Christopher an unbelievable and absolutely terrifying collection of stories to pass the time while they waited to be rescued. Christopher vowed that if he ever got out of the hole, he would write Mr. Flex’s stories down and share them with the world.

The first of his Hole Stories, called The King of Arugula, was published in 2007 by Thistledown Press. Fowl, Swine and Things That Send Shivers Down Your Spine, the second story Mr. Flex told, and Christopher’s second book in the series, is available now as an eBook.

Christopher was born on a horse farm in Edmonton, but now lives in Surrey, BC, with two guinea pigs that refuse to wear saddles.
