About the Author
Christopher L. Knauer a.k.a Chris O’Brian grew up as a shy Midwestern boy who was born in Eastern Iowa and grew up in a small Northwestern town in Illinois. He loves sports and music (maybe not in that order). Even though many radio and TV fans have assumed he has a special kind of personality and must enjoy living in the limelight, Chris prefers to just quietly do his best without a lot of hype or fanfare.
Chris’ hobbies include fishing, golfing, and traveling, and he still follows baseball and basketball as often as possible. He has three adult children and two grandchildren.
