Chris Quinton

Biography

I started creating stories not long after I mastered joined-up writing, somewhat to the bemusement of my parents and my English teachers - even my school essays weren't safe from my overactive imagination. But I received plenty of encouragement. Dad gave me an already old Everest typewriter when I was ten, and it was probably the best gift I'd ever received until the inventions of the home computer and the World-Wide Web.

My reading and writing interests range from historical, mystery, and paranormal, to science-fiction and fantasy, mostly in the male/male genre. I refuse to be pigeon-holed and intend to uphold the long and honorable tradition of the Eccentric Brit to the best of my ability.

In my spare time [hah!] I read, or listen to audio books while quilting or knitting. In the past I've worked for my local Constabulary as a behind-the-scenes civilian for over twenty years, I've been a part-time and unpaid amateur archaeologist and a 15th century re-enactor.
I live in a small but ancient city in the West of England in the heart of what once was the kingdom of Wessex ... and I share my home with an extended family and assorted livestock. Life tends toward the chaotic, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
