Amongst other things, Chris is now the 2nd oldest ski bum in the French Alpine town of Morzine. How he got this coveted title is the subject of his latest book - Skiing With Demons. A proud Yorkshireman, Chris was born in Hull but ended up living in the Midlands. He hasn't always been a writer although he did have a weekly column in the Birmingham Post for many years. Chris graduated from Newcastle University and got a "proper" job as a software engineer. Then, thanks to the rise of the World Wide Web, he accidentally ended up working in Marketing. During the halcyon dotcom era, he set up a website development company in Birmingham then sold it, and his soul, to an advertising agency. He is now a self-appointed expert on midlife crises, having almost survived his own. He is also a chalet host, ski instructor (just), Ski Club of Great Britain Leader and Labrador owner.
