About Christopher


Photo by Erica Leigh Macaranas.

Hi there! I’m Christopher. I grew up in Southern California’s Antelope Valley. I’m a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and I currently volunteer with the national youth organization, the Young Marines of the Marine Corps League. I earned a BA in Creative Writing in 2015 and I host writer’s groups and workshops in my area. I’m a stay-at-home husband and father. I’m up every morning at 3 a.m. to write fiction before turning my attention to my lovely new daughter, Eleanor. My wife, Tritia, is a marriage and family therapist, and my first reader. We live in Palmdale, California with our delightful dogs, Porthos and Lady Belmont. Welcome to my blog. Let’s have coffee together!


Proud alum of HMX-1, the President’s Helicopter Squadron (2003 to 2007).

Have a look around and see if there’s something you like. I enjoy reading and replying to comments as often as possible. You can connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads, and of course, here at WordPress. Thanks for stopping by. Hope to hear from you soon!

  1. Chris, both your interpretation and analysis of Bierce’s “A Horseman In the Sky” instantly brought relief to my slightly perplexed conscience. Thank you. And again thank you. I am also a service member and Veteran. I serve with the NY Army National Guard. Your elaborate close reading of this short story which was assigned as homework in my Philosophy Ethics class is sure to make my contributions to class discussions much more qualitative! You are a ray of literary light peering through the World Wide Web. How lucky I am to have read your review! Chris, I am a fan! I can’t wait to read your own personal written works.

    • Hi Eileen. I deeply apologize that it has taken me more than two years to reply to your kind and wonderful post. In the past two years, I’ve moved, completed my bachelor’s degree, gotten married, and become a father. I also volunteer part-time for a nonprofit youth organization. It doesn’t excuse my absence or my delayed response, but I hope it explains it! I’ve finally managed to get back to writing amidst all of that, and returning to my blog has been a welcome renewal.
      Even though it’s been a couple of years, I’d love to know how that ethics class went. Philosophy is near and dear to my heart. I’m glad my essay had a positive impact in your own studies.
      You thanked me for my service, and I would like to thank you for yours as well!
      Thanks again, Eileen.
