Kris grew up in Plymouth, where he spent most of his time reading books, riding around on his bike and daydreaming about writing a book himself one day.

Since then, Kris has had more jobs than he cares to think about. He has been a cinema projectionist, a bookseller and a blood factory technician. He has worked in a record store in Vancouver and at an animal sanctuary in the Guatemalan jungle (in which he had the weirdly enjoyable job of sweeping up monkey poo).

Somewhere along the way Kris started to write stories and found that inventing characters and worlds and hammering his vague ideas into shape was actually a lot of fun. He has been totally addicted to the process ever since.

Kris has recently completed the MA in Writing for Young People at Bath Spa University. He graduated with Distinction and was awarded the prize for Most Promising Writer.
