Christopher L. SmithA native Texan by birth (if not geography), Chris moved “home” as soon as he could.

While attending Texas A+M he met a wonderful lady that somehow found him to be funny, charming, and worth marrying. (She has since changed her mind on the funny and charming, but figures he’s still a keeper.)

Chris began writing fiction in 2012. His short stories can be found in the following anthologies: “Bad Blood and Old Silver,” (Luna’s Children: Stranger Worlds, Dark Oak Press), “Isaac Crane and the Ancient Hunger” (Dark Corners Anthology, Fantom Enterprises); “200 miles to Huntsville” (Black Tide Rising, Baen); “What Manner of Fool” (Sha’Daa: Inked, Copper Dog Publishing); “Case Hardened” (Forged in Blood, Baen); and “Velut Luna” (The Good, The Bad, and The Merc, Seventh Seal Press)

He has co-written two novels, Kraken Mare (Severed Press) with Jason Cordova, and Gunpowder and Embers—Last Judgement’s Fire, Book 1 (Baen, forthcoming) with John Ringo and Kacey Ezell. A solo urban fantasy novel is currently under construction.

His cats allow his family and three dogs to reside with them outside of San Antonio.
