A Londoner, Chris came to Australia as an unskilled migrant and finished up working as a lawyer, which she thought she’d like, but didn’t. Instead she decided to write the sort of speculative fiction book she would have liked to read when she was a young adult. One where the women aren’t ‘damseled’ and the gays don’t all end up dead.
She lives with her partner of many years, Maria, and between them they have three children and two grandchildren. Chris is a sports tragic who supports Tottenham Hotspur, Port Power, and, because it is good to support at least one team that wins games, Barcelona FC.
On a gayer note, she is addicted to Eurovision.
