Chris Van Keuren
Raised in upstate New York, Poughkeepsie area I am one of five children raised in the rural part of Dutchess County. Graduated from Rhinebeck HS and SUNY Delhi with an AAS dgree in Veterinary Science as a Verterinary Technologist and as a Medical Laboratory Tech. Married and divorced with one child. Lab Tech is my job, writing is my downtime and enjoyment. I hope you find it as enjoyable to read. Much of what follows I attribute to my dad as he taught me to enjoy and respect the world around me. It holds many wonders as well as tradegies that I have learned, and still am learning for a long time to come.
I learned long ago to appreciate the finer things in life and that includes playing out in the rain with brothers and sisters. How to plant things and watch them grow. I enjoy the rebirth of spring each year, spectacular winter sunsets caused by ice crystals in the air. The beauty of deadly ice storms as trees shone with an ethereal iridescence in the morning sun before disppearing, morning birds trilling to the daybreak.
I tried to convey some of this in my story as I take you on an adventure intertwined with human emotions and the confilicts of everyday life we all face and need an escape from. Enjoy!
