Chris Smith ignited his love of stories on his sixteenth birthday when his parents gave him a leather bound copy of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Every year since, he's picked up the book and fallen into the world of hobbits, wizards, warriors, and orcs. To him, it's a birthday present that will continue to be given each and every year for the rest of his life.
He began writing at the age of nineteen as a way to purge his mind of cascading plots and the untold stories of characters who follow him around in his day-to-day life. To date, he has written fifteen novels falling mostly into the young adult fantasy genre; but he has delved into suspense, crime drama, and post-apocalyptic categories as well.
Currently, Chris is in the middle of writing the Angels without Wings series. The books are young adult fantasy with Christian themes of faith, sacrifice, love, redemption, and forgiveness. Being the father of three young boys is the most important aspect of his life. Worlds of fun and adventure revolve constantly under the roof of their home in Mustang, Oklahoma.
