Chris was born in December 1955, the youngest of four. The first year of his life was away from his family as his mum had been taken ill after he was born. He was looked after by a set of nuns in Mortimer, Berkshire.
On returning to the family Chris found himself close to his brother Dave and sister Sue but no-one else. Sensitive to the angry undercurrent between his parents he took refuse in writing poems to express the mixed emotions he encountered at home.
Now in his late fifties, Chris writes short stories, song lyrics and cartoons as well as poems.
