Born in Middlesbrough, UK, Chris grew up in various locations in the UK, Germany and South Africa.


He writes short stories and children’s stories, sometimes illustrated by Jenny Fionda, his sister.

Chris’ favourite authors include Graham Greene, Shusaku Endo, Raymond Carver, Kuniko Mukoda, Ha Jin, Eric Carle and John Ryan (of Captain Pugwash fame).

Chris has been in Japan since 1994 and currently lives near Tokyo with his wife and daughter. When he is not working and writing, he pens poor haiku in Japanese and plays park golf badly, but not at the same time!
