About Chris Fox
If you need to reach me I can be found at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear from you!
Once upon a time I was an iPhone developer architecting the app used to scope Stephen Colbert’s ear. These days I write stories about dragons tearing apart starships, and gods blowing up planets.
I’ve been writing since I was six years old and started inflicting my work on others at age 18. By age 24 people stopped running away when I approached them with a new story and shortly thereafter I published my first one in the Rifter.
Wait you’re still reading?
Ok, the facts I’m supposed to list in a bio. As of this writing I’m 42 years old and live just north of the Golden Gate Bridge in beautiful Marin County. If you’re unsure how to find it just follow the smell of self-entitlement. Once you see the teens driving Teslas you’ll know you’re in the right place.
I’ve published over 20 novels, and have a series of non-fiction books that teach writers how to duplicate my success. I’m far better known for the Write Faster, Write Smarter series, and have spoken all over the country about writing to market, making your writing a habit, and quitting your day job to become an author.
My true love though? Science fiction and fantasy. I love worldbuilding. I love storytelling. I’ve been playing D&D since I was six, and they’ll have to pry my d20 from my cold, dead hands =D

I am the reincarnation of a dark god. I cannot escape that now. The prince of demons come again. And I am hunted. The Fomori have a prophecy about my return, and have been so kind as to dispatch the Morrigan herself to slay me. She's even forging a special divine sword.
Their armies of beastmen and giants march upon Hasra, and the ailing empire is in no shape to hold. They need new troops. They need us. My friends and I are being sent off to the other Catalysts we control to gain more magic so that we can resist the Fomori advance.
First we'll journey to Calmora, to gain air from the Breath of Shu. Then we will fly to Enestius to gain dream from the Hoard of Lakshmi. If we survive, then we'll move on to the strongest Catalyst on the continent, the legendary Hammer of Reevanthara.
Once we have secured our powers we'll return to the war, and break the Fomori...or die trying. I will find a way to drive them from our lands, for my family. For my people. For the darkness living inside me.

Defying command, he leads his misfit crew into hostile territory in search of answers. They encounter the mythical Void Wraith, an unstoppable legend whispered by the first race. After 26,000 years the Void Wraith have returned to begin the next Eradication. Their technology is superior, their motives unclear.
Humanity cannot stop them. Not without help. Captain Dryker’s only hope is to forge an alliance with mankind’s greatest enemy, the savage Tigris.
One maverick captain, an unlikely crew, and an aging vessel are all that stand between humanity and the Eradication.

The builder Yoggoth has arrived in our Solar System, but his goal is not to conquer our world. He has locked the sun in a Yoggothian Sphere designed to siphon our star of all power.
Earth is hurled into darkness, denied the lifegiving heat of our sun, even as Yoggoth's fleets move upon our world. Our heroes, led by Blair, Liz, and Isis, must deal with the new winter before they can even hope to oppose them.
In Australia Jordan has used the intervening five years for one purpose. To become a Builder-slaying dino-enhanced death machine. Under Uluru's tutelage he has mastered combat, and stands ready to face Yoggoth, whatever the cost.
Outnumbered and outmatched Liz leads a desperate assault on Yoggoth's flagship, where Excalibur's destiny will finally be realized. If the blade breaks our world will be annihilated. If it holds, then Liz will provide Blair one chance to save everyone.
