Debut novel – out now

HELIOPHOBIA is out now from Montag Press in both electronic and paperback format.

Murray Sandman has issues: a debilitating stutter, shoes whose Velcro straps won’t stay shut, a basement full of nasty chemicals, and a career as a pricing gun repairman that’s fizzling out faster than a tired little meteor.

Oh yeah, and he’s afraid of the sun.

About Chris

Writer of stories. Editor of books and such. Ex-pat of America. Eater of plants.

I moved to Finland 12 years ago at the behest of a Finn. The experiences of living in a country with a frustratingly complicated language and a sometimes impenetrable culture has obviously shaped my identity as a writer and societal outlier, though all for the best.

“I’m excited for the work of this fine, fine writer to be entering the world. Heliophobia is a fabulous debut and its author someone to watch.”

– Laird Hunt, National Book Award Finalist (Zorrie)
