Kris Malkin


Kris Malkin was born in Swindon, south-west England. Although, a life-long fan of science and horror, it wasn't until University that he began writing, taking inspiration from friends and an enjoyment of Role-Playing Games, such as 'Shadowrun'. He started with short-fiction, based on characters from the games and developed from there, trying horror fiction and later crime.

Psychology has also long been a personal interest and helped inspire his first novel, 'Blood in the Rain', which took around two years to get to print. He continues to write short fiction, but more books are planned; a science-fiction series, of which the first part is completed, and further anthologies of short stories. Swindon holds an important place in his heart, however he now lives in south-east Poland with his wife and son, where he works as an English Language teacher.
